Practice

 

The act of seeing, perception, the exploration of the surrounding world in a non-linear narrative.

Distrusting the visible, standing on the threshold, altering, exhausting, revealing the fleeting image.

Drawing a map of the uncertain and covering its surface up to the edge.

Looking for the horizon, the infinite, the multiplicity, the possibilities, the unthinkable.

Giving shape to time through the transformation of matter.
