is an artistic and political project, both ethic and aesthetic, which aims to include and to connect. It is an audiovisual proposal addressed to the entire world from Catalunya. An experience of knowledge and recognition. An invitation to people from all kinds of backgrounds and who have all kinds of different views and values. It is also an exercise of direct action. A document in favour of every language, every place and every person who wants to be part of it.

al position. The first video would show the ground below them as they walked, while the second one would focus on what lay above them, walking in the same place. I also requested that both videos be made holding the camera in horizontal position, facing directly up or down. Those videos are the bricks from which LAHUMANITAT.CAT is built . The result of the work is a set of overlapping images, a continuous stream ocurring without interruption, marking the upper and lower limits of a person walking down the surface of the planet for one minute of his life, and sharing it.
To this date, the videos you are watching come from over 30 countries. The different length of the videos, and the ramdomly computer program, make them flow in such a way that the floor of one has the top of another, probably thousands of kilometers away, and viceversa. Because the cadence and the order in which the videos appear is also random.
Together with these videos, sound some audios made by myself with sounds, musics, languages, explanations, comments, etc., all around the globe, or almost it. Also left to chance.
Here, mankind seen as a restless giant anthill. Nothing and everthing matches, but it moves The middle is everywhere.
If you are motivated to participate, you only have to make two separate videos with your mobile phone in an horizontal position, and send them to me at the following e-mail adresses:
Whatsapp : +34 654 09 72 84
I will add the new videos to
LAHUMANITAT.CAT as I receive them.
Thank you very much for participating.
Thank you very much, wherever you are.
