A man crosses a desert, a forest and an artificial lake on a diplomatic journey. In the midst of his struggles against nature and politics, he finds himself on a treehouse emerged from the red ground.
“We worked to create a video-collage bringing and mixing Brasilia and its contradictions, as well Nervi’s architecture, as graphics overlaps. It was very important to us to create layers showing up movements, such as the earth move, the machine-man displacement, the trees falling down and the water courses. This work aims to comprehend the political, material and formal aspects of these relations“
