Federica Marra, A ritroso_Backwards

Video, 1920x1080

Video / Film

This video is designed to be played in loop to suggest the circular process of knowledge. The images and the sounds come backwards at half of the video, like the thought when is free from rationality and is led by particulary circumstances. From a state of mind led by rain and its sound to a dissociation, from thinking about time and feeling it, to doubt its linear flow. Is it only me who feeling this way? Is there a secret in this order? The desire to yell this questions come back to the eye who is watching. In the plants and animals' silence there is much more than in our words, and to express this restlessness is quite impossible. We have just the poetry to do this. Taking time to think about ourselves and be free to doubt our understanding of the world: that's the aim.
