THE FOREST IN FLAMES
CURATED BY DANIEL GARDEAZABAL
The forest in flames is a video made from overlapping and compositing hundreds of photographs, which meditates on the fast-paced world we currently live in. It is an invitation to stop and regain consciousness on the now: Days pass without content, without trees, without the heat of the sun. Filled with dark waters and thoughts of success, the world in which we live is an anxious one, rife with fear, speed and collective hysteria. We forget that human life is built of fragments and pieces and that in the wisdom of Nature, everything is moulded to it.
This video is a reflection on an emotional and physical state. It depicts the cycles that the artist has not completed, only to fit into a society that has forgotten the Self and has dedicated itself to the repetition of an accelerated life in which long processes have no place.
