Travel Notebooks: Bilbo, Bizkaia, Spain
FILE 2018 | ANIMA +
Electronic Language International Festival
“Bilbo” is part of a series of works titled “Travel Notebooks”. In this project my videos are like carillons and puzzles, that want to show the essence of a city in its manifold aspects and its motion. An avverinistic architecture, made by fantastic animals of galactic prehistory, moving within an industrial-fantasy atmosphere. Bilbao, a city with a strong identity, a mix of old values and love for progress. But, who really are its people? Where do they come from?
