"La mano izquierda es la que escribe las mentiras chiquitas" (The left hand is the one that writes the tiny lies)

I am right-handed, but I usually write things to myself with my left hand just for the sake of it. I have realized that when I write with my left hand —despite the childish calligraphy— I tend to treat words and concepts in a different manner than when doing it with the right one.

I wrote this piece with my left hand. The aesthetic approach of this piece is related to the psychoanalytic meaning that lies behind flaw, to take the "left-handedness" beyond the writing: performance techniques, and compositional processes.
