Vertical Limit, video
The video shows a haptic exploration of a 16-meter high tree. The protagonist in this video is a hand that travels up the bark starting from the firm solid trunk at eye level and ending at the highest most elastic of its branches. The hand is in this case not Symbol of how to manipulate the physical world, but also how to perceive it.
I took the video in one shoot and its flawless motion creates a feeling of lucidity and weightlessness. For a moment one can become a gravity defying squirrel or an ant not worrying about dimensions or just liquid absorbed by the roots and traveling through fine capillary systems towards the leaf-bearing branches.
