Frida Robles is an essayist-artist; she observes the traces that people leave in public spaces and then diffracts it back into the same space. She does this through text, performance, images and moving pictures. For example: in order to learn more about love, Robles went into a public square in Mexico City and listened to people’s love stories, channeled their emotions and translated them into love letters.
