Dead Times by Sonia Madrigal

22 Mar

Several social phenomena have in common big metropolis, nevertheless, those that originate in Mexico and some countries of Latin America, have certain peculiarities, to a large extent for the social inequality.

It is as well as many inhabitants of the Metropolitan area of the Mexico City we cover long routes inside the public transportation to come to our multiple destinations (school, work place, home), using for it about four hours daily.

The most used displacement means are the combi, minibus, trolley and subway, for this reason, inside and around these vehicles languages, elements and codes inherent exist, it create a coexistence subculture and even of survival inside the city.

On these trips, the people make use of these spaces to eat, to read, to listen to music, to study or simply to wait and, in view of this situation, there comes also the moment in which the weariness becomes clear: the multitude, the noise, the smells, the climate and the discomfort of these places, in addition to other proper factors of this big city, influence so much that for moments the people sleep or simply it remains absorbed in the weightlessness of his thoughts.

In this eternal coming and going inside the city, a part of our existence disappears giving him life to these Dead Times.
