My name is Alfredo Meschi and I’m an artivist..
We live in a society that cause us sever episodes of amnesia. Our consciousness of injustice, compassion, empathy doesn’t flow smoothly as it should. That’s why I was looking for a way to keep my consciousness flow, to not forget, not even for a second.
Every second counts because in this short amount of time 40.000 “not human souls” are killed to satisfy our appetite. My aim was to freeze this second or, even better, “keep it pulsing on my skin” to be always aware. “X” is a plain sign, a plain mark, a neutral letter. It’s the sign that we use on our “to do” list when we finish to do something, to count something, to kill “something”…”
