A long and almost intangible tilt of the perspective and circulation of the horizon allow us to feel the revolution of the Earth. They are formed in this video by mirror like interosculation of the sky and the see fixed by the camera.
Little by little the landscape is transformed into a drawing composed of ink blots which turns to be a key to a deepintrospective vision. The wish to share impressions of this journey is explained through the existence of a certain space between imagination and reality, a space where the symbolic and corporal co-exist with the emotional.The geographic space, shot trough with temporality gives birth to a language that can express the process of endless morphogenesis.
