A simple dry leaf, still tied to the tree by an invisible spider's thread, sways with every slightest breath of wind. The singing of a polyphonic quartet follows all the movements, with a hypnotic trend: how much longer will it last?
Marco Coraggio's latest video is a hymn to the fragility of existence.
"As is the lineage of leaves, so that of men".
