Too young and too short to get on the carnival ride during Las Fiestas Patronales, my nephew look on helplessly as the machine spins endlessly. “Mirando” explores the young boy’s powerlessness as he stares at the one thing that he so desperately wants to do but cannot. He is paralyzed by both wonder and disappointment. This is contrasted against the indifferent miradas (stares) of the carnival goers.
(Demasiado joven y demasiado bajo para subir al paseo de carnaval durante Las Fiestas Patronales, mi sobrino mira impotente mientras la máquina gira sin parar. “Mirando” explora la impotencia del niño mientras mira la única cosa que tan desesperadamente quiere hacer pero no puede. Está paralizado por la maravilla y la decepción. Esto se contrasta con las miradas indiferentes de los asistentes al carnaval.)
