(2009)

Reversing the temporality of the events, putting them out of context, disassociating them, transforming their intentions, moving in its edges, extending their efficiency, eliminating the hierarchy between cause and effect, increasing awareness, reducing resistance, experimenting with short circuits, prolonging the pleasure, increasing effort to infinity, freezing the sensations, relaxing perception, experiencing the process of attribution of meaning, living in the satellites, bringing the background, tracing the amorphous, giving time to space, living in the gerund, crawling analogically, imagining reality, transforming curiosity, exaggerating manner, appeasing the desire, astonishing more, segregating more, decoding more, intensifying more more more mor mo mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, wink one eye! wink the other! He was already smiling when he began to smile for the second time. Wait! Stay there for a moment, do not move …
