We immerse ourselves in a symbolic trip through a subjective nature, which is experienced directly, without analysing it. An abolition of the thinking in order to be replaced by the consciousness and the unconsciousness. An intuitive exploration. Liquid vision. Using variations of sound and image alterations, we experience the transience and mutability of the meaning and the formal perception. It is about penetrate in the object, and see it from inside, in this case the tops of some eucalyptus trees of which we see their life vibrating within itself. Each movement has its own communicability, and there is communion among the isolated acts. An image that overflows itself; exuberance.
