RAPTURE

I was in Mexico on the 18th of April 2014 when the ground began to shake. It was an earthquake  in a section of the Pacific Coast known as the Guerrero Seismic Gap, which is a 125-mile section where tectonic plates meet and have been locked, causing huge amounts of energy to be stored up with potentially devastating effects. Mexico City is vulnerable to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds. The city jiggle like jelly when the quake waves hit.I guess the Mexicans are more used to the earthquakes but for me it was a scary experience. The following days all that I could see were cracks in the pavements, fractures in society, scratches and scars.  I mixed a gelatine with the uv powder and filled the gaps in the pavements that with the nightfall would begin to glow.
