Project Description

    Arael is a visual performance that seeks a representation of the journey for matter to be conceived. The name is a reflection for a passage between states of contemplation of the form, in a space where the encounter with rules, changes constantly the composition. Presented in an abstract environment, realities are generated and consequently deconstructed, in a single moment.
