Six years ago, I thought of making a video with which I could fully identify myself. Without rules, without prejudice, without fear. Where I could be free regarding the narrative, either conceptual or audio and visual. I have often been committed, motivated, inspired; but I have also felt uninspired, discouraged, stuck. I let time go by. Often the seed falls on the earth and doesn’t bear fruit because our day-to-day routines smother it.
The Covid-19 pandemic led us to a sudden arrest in our lives. It made me stop and helped me take a step back so that I could better focus on my goals. And that was when I realized that I was a part of a cycle. A creative cycle that hides its beauty in wonderment, but also in blockage and in emptiness. The beauty of error but also the beauty of being a fearless pioneer, of experimenting, feeling, provoking, sketching, and, bottom line, creating.
