MY LEFT EYE (MI OJO IZQUIERDO)
It is a multimedia creative project that combines poetry, storytelling, illustration and video creation in a bilingual format (Spanish and English).
From the publication of a printed book, poetry comes to life through its link via QR with a website podcast that contains the reading of the author's voice pieces, thus allowing the reader to immerse himself/herself in the aura of creation from where they were written.
In order to bring the poetic genre closer to the new generations, the project seeks to disseminate the pieces on social networks and through the website itself.
Also, framed in the context of an exhibition in the artist's hometown, Santander, handwritten pieces of poems will be shown along with illustrations contained in the book and musical and immersive video creations through virtual reality.

The Artist: Laura Salesa Amarante
Laura is a creative who has dedicated 20 years to working for big brands in the world of advertising and graphic design. A large part of her career took place in London, where she perfected her command of the English language, which she had been interested in learning since she was a child.
My Left Eye collects poetry written from his adolescence to the present day, illustrated with her own drawings. For the artist, creative writing has always been her most complete means of expression, and also her way of expressing emotions. With this project she also seeks to show the therapeutic work of this artistic discipline.
In 2012 Laura published her first Science Fiction novel, "Nueva Era - Las Crónicas de El Revelador", an apocalyptic story with historical references inspired by the prediction of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012. The novel is self-published in English and Spanish and presented in London.
We have prepared some special rewards for our patrons:

- A4 Prints to Frame: We've chosen one of the artist's illustrations to create brilliant A4 prints to frame and place in your favorite spot at home. With two designs to choose from: headlights or heart.
What will we allocate your contributions to

Elaboration of the Podcast of +40 episodes of poetry on Spotify
The project goes beyond these elements, with an audiovisual exhibition in which the book and videos will be presented and pieces of illustration by the artist will be exhibited.
All the elements of the project are already in their final phase of production. We plan to print the books for the end of March. By then we will prepare our rewards and send them immediately except for the Personalized Poetry, for which we estimate a delivery in the month of June.
