By detecting invisible presences, infrared photography allows analyzing the territory in a distinct way. The photographs in the Timeshoresseries display landscapes frozen in time, like fleeting moments from the geological age. An age of volcanoes and unformed continents, long before any history was written. Together with its sound installation, each image seems to emerge in the viewer’s eyes like the memory of a forgotten dream. As on rising to the surface, these images reiterate movements from the installation Vulcão being, simultaneously, chapter points in the narrative and the canvas onto which animation scenes are pictured. As the robotic movement of an artificial observer, or rather as a volcanic deity looking down upon the Earth, the film camera looks for things hiding in plain sight. Facing the photographic paper, the viewer is invited to search for its own details, at his own pace and pleasure. Observing and listening within the loop of the frame.
