Video 2018     8’ 28’’


There is a road that arrives in about 8 minutes to a place. A place wrapped in a landscape where nature manifests itself in an atmosphere of permanent renewal, where I arrived after a short car journey, which path leading to a lake that merged in the immensity of a gray blue sky.

It was during this journey that I realized the existence of two times that are together in the same image, which allowed me to adopt the concept of "double time". The first time, I became aware of the fleeting movement of the landscape in the course of this journey - a present and constant time along the road; the second, a time that emerged static from the same landscape, fixed in mental images through my gaze, in my memory, as a record of the past. The two times that I realized intersected and stimulated the unequivocal perception of the surrounding landscape.
