Disconnected Experiences


Pavel Méndez Hernández  (CU)

Welcome to this special Artist Journey from the Disconnected Experiences Garden of Cuba. I believe in the power of art to de-automatize the gaze and my mission is to transform that aptitude into action. I develop philosophical works that focus on the human being, on the prejudices and external predispositions that underlie their experience. I take advantage of the potential of video as a means of expression, experimenting with animation, video installation, video performance, and interactive video, to affect the viewer’s perception and emotions.
