Graffitiist ,chanteuse,video/filmmaker presents video & audio performance. http://open.your.eyes.free.fr/index.htm Open your eyes project started in March 2003. YZ and Missill initiated the project in Paris and painted fifty or so giant face in the city. The selected locations were crossroads, stations, intersections… They symbolised the web of communities, exchanges and sharing between cultures. Painted on to the network of electrical cabinets, these faces, in turn, constitute a giant face superposed over the map of the city. An evolving fresco which brings the spotlight to all the smaller struggles for global change. A way of saying that little is needed to make oneself heard. Today, YZ is bringing the project internationally and paint big scale faces in places such as the Tacheles in Berlin or 5 Pointz in New York.
STEVE SANDBERG AND REINALDO COTIA BRAGA return with a new collaboration of sound, performance and multi media.
