High Tide
HD video, 19’27”, loop, 2013

High Tide is a close-up view of a gypsum-based material soaking water, cracking and transforming from powder to liquid state. It is the pre-process of the material changing from a mineral to a liquid with the necessary consistency to be able to function as modeling material for a new body.

The close and quiet view of such material and its changes becomes the view of an abstract landscape that has lost a reference to scale, becoming either a micro space, or the sight of a wide geological formation crumbling.
