Seeing with the ears is the unusual point of view for this audiovisual project, composed of a Short Film and the a Audio and Video Installation.
Here presented in the film version. A predominantly auditory experience where most of the time is made of “Dark Space” and suspense.
The visual and narrative structure of the film imagines a reversal and transitions of perspective between sound and image, where the natural world is “Shown” mainly through the reverberation of sounds produced in a state of suspension and surprise.
An initiatory path, started through the subtraction of “Visible Frames” (primary elements), which transformed the absence of information into an opportunity for creating intimacy in a new emotional perception and creative space.
A return to the ideal primitive mood, where an “Empty Black Space of Time” can be a potential metaphysical moment for a critical reflection on the limits of our perception.
A natural observational trip turns into a poetic and fantastic perceptive experience, where any natural relation cause and effect between Fauna, Flora and Humans, are overthrown and reinvented.
