The discovery of the ruins of a museum triggers the reconstruction of History. A narrative tells about the transformations in an unknown ecosystem through the fragments found. The description of an unknown continent is narrated from the leftovers in this land.
Divided into four chapters, each refers to a region of the continent: the area of geometric lagoons, buried cities, and a desert in place of a forest. The marks of an extractive activity that led to the continent’s exhaustion characterize each region’s transformations.
The video’s narrative is akin to documentary films with a scientific and descriptive approach to a place where landscape simulations are designed to narrate a history of the past and project future constructions. The sequence of images is animated and accompanied by an original soundtrack.
