Hoy Guatemala se despertó con la mejor noticia que le pudieron dar en 4 meses. Su presidente había dejado el cargo, señalado por actos de corrupción.

La noticia la recibí como a la 1.30AM. Contesté el teléfono adormitado aún y solo escuche:
— Rafa, ¡renunció!
— ¿Quién?
— Otto Pérez, ¡renunció!

Aún sin creerlo, revise rápido Twitter, Facebook y efectivamente todos los diarios en sus redes sociales tenían las deliciosas palabras “OPM RENUNCIÓ”

El 3 de septiembre de 2015 será un día para recordar. La exigencia ciudadana pudo más que cualquier corrupción.

My name is Gabriel Esteban Molina, and I’m a Canadian artist studying my MA Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, England. I work in painting, drawing, sculpture, and for the last year and a half have been obsessed with photography, video and GIFs. I always took photos while in my undergrad, and after graduating, due to life circumstances surrounding my long distance relationship and occupation in security, spent nearly all my time in front of a screen. My current work centers around screens and images and I have recently begun experimenting with projection. I’m interested in materiality, optics, and apophenia to name just a few things. You can find my work at http://gabrielmolina.tumblr.com as well as newhive.com/mindsack.

Vacation

I’m going to Chile with my mother for 2 weeks to visit my family. It’s been 4 years since I’ve been there, which isn’t too long for me, but it’s been 16 years since my mother was there! I’ll be back on the 27. I may or may not keep posting while I’m gone. I’ll probably be flying over the Atlantic ocean when this is posted, woohoo!
