The Multipilcity of the Other is a solo movement research: The body fluctuates slowly through amorphous and recognizable images, revealing them in an enigmatic way to the observer. Playing with the human system of recognition and categorization, the work in progress attempts to construct and deconstruct known codes, opening a space of contemplation: A multiplicity of the other, that reminds us and questions the self.
