Animation made inside a miniature reconstruction after an old cantina called Salón Correo, in Puebla, Mexico. The original cantina was once an important meeting point but was closed down and later replaced by one of the many growing restaurant chains in the city; a common destiny for many of the traditional cantinas in Mexico. I visited the original cantina Salón Correo several times while living in Puebla, Mexico between 2009-2011. The miniature reconstruction was made after the cantina had been closed down, based on photographs.
Stop-motion animation (4 min 11 sec, audio). Set made from cardboard, plaster, aluminum foil, acrylic paint. Animation projected into a cardboard box mounted on wall. Projection/box size approx. 22 x 15 cm. (please note thumbnail picture)
