Deconstrucción, descomposición y muerte de una cebolla/ As part of a research project on the subject, a structured and systematic analysis of an onion is carried out by printing its image every 24 hours for 100 days. The three images that make up the triptych are a result of the selective overlapping of the 100 prints of the onion, each with a different arrangement and opacity. The video shows each of these prints in three different time intervals and in numbered form, exposing the fragmented progressive and systematic transformation commonly identified as the decomposition of a vegetable.
