Director Statement

Carolina Grilo Santos has been exploring scientific concepts and languages from a speculative point of view, crossing artistic research and practice, geopoetry, astrophysics, geography, para-scientific theories, and personal memories. Creating her unique world, where science, imagination, doubts, and memories build segmented realities and truths, she has been working mainly on site-specific projects where intruder objects appear to disrupt logic or temporary micro-universes are created and lagged from reality.
