If I

This clip was shot in the quintessential lagoon (from Latin lacuna meaning pond and hole) in its ancient part, Northern of Venice. Symbolic elements like fire and water, air and earth, fill up this hole. The air feeds the fire which is materializing flashbacks that the water cools down. The journey takes you through different seasons, from swampy to more open areas, from blue to purple to lilac and red, out of the blue into the red. Sunset or sunrise Mysterious meanings are hidden where the point of the flame is as transparent as the water and the air. From the womb of the lagoon, from the lagoon in the womb, time is not lost to me, but lost in me. Little visual tribute to Zulawski’s “On the Silver Globe”
