Invisible. That which we are able to accept because it’s “the norm”, that which we remain silent so as not to disturb, that which we don’t allow ourselves to feel. Many behaviour patterns that can cause disagreement between the rational, intellectual and emotional parts of oneself. From this arises another aspect to be discussed: all the information we receive from the media, religion, new technologies, politics… Information that we often acquire without filtering and make us assimilate some situations even when it negatively affects us in any way. Situations that disconnect us, that make us invisible. “Invisible” raises the question if the human being of the future will be wiser or more automaton.

Synopsis: “A body that collects all the memory in front of a head that marks the rhythm, as if it were another body. Absences that are present. What is not said, what is not swallowed, what is not allowed. Where are the limits?”
