The opening main figure is a reminder of the 3-character study at the basis of Bacon’s crucifixion.Among these waiting forms enter a superior being which then gives way to a series of events.This video can be read from several approaches and it shows a metaphor of human life, both lay and religious, that eventually ends up with a storming sea….an held over final scene foreshadowing a new cyclic beginning.
The proprieties of vision become here an exercise of voluntary focusing. A visual continuum where the “beyond aspect” of vision is at work, an objectification of subliminal messages. The interstices of vision eventually set the new subject and a new language.

A mental and objective alignment.
