Science fiction does not require special effects or technological gadgets— only an ear attentive to the beat of the earth, which keeps the secret of all life and records the clumsy passage of humanity. The works that make up this program auscultate ancestral landscapes and inhospitable terrains; they investigate the mythical time that infuses the vast environment that we call our home. A mysterious character, the last of his kind, grants to the future the chronicle of his species’ extinction, while the natural world, abstracted in a spectacle of color and movement, mocks human despotism. In the cracked body of the floor, in the stealthy rumble of the entrails of the planet, in the flirtation of sea and sky, in the imperceptible changes of light, the temperament of space is intimated.
