Trailer: Se levanta el sol


Placing the focus on a bulb that is yet to sprout, and from which I will observe its uncertain daily growth. The roots move like jellyfish, will it stay shut, rot, bloom? I think about the word seed, in germinated, non-existent bodies, in daily cultivation. The possibilities of a constructed landscape: incorporating layers of paper, pieces of clay, lights and textures to this small, possible and crumpled, imagined location is a tactile act charged with care and patience.
