The medium-length film Origin evokes a futuristic way of life in a mysterious landscape deep within the earth. The underworld of the railway chambers, excavated over time, harbors remains of lost civilizations and evolved species of our world. Sound and text intertwine to create a meditation on time, memory, ruins and extinction.
This film will be recorded in the underground of Madrid where the abandoned metro stations and the forgotten subways will allow the artist to open a kind of intermediate zone where the spectators, sometimes intruders or voiyers, are immersed in a flow of events and audiovisual elements. This film investigates the erosion of memory and the corruption of information, revealing how ideas can be eroded by the effects of time and technology.
The edition infects matter with memory with the help of the fusion of the future and the past of science fiction.
