Sin título (Utopia) #29 (1998-99) Cabello/Carceller

"The empty pools stand like ruins, abandoned and littered with leaves and other signs of disuse, and in this ruined state they represent a perversion of desire, the decay of the commodity, the queerness of the disassociation of use from value. When the pool no longer signifies as a marker of wealth and success it becomes available to queer signification as a symbol site of failure, loss, rupture, disorder, incipient chaos, and the desire animated by these states nonetheless." - Judith Halberstam and The Queer Art of Failure
