Cave Dweller

In these times of superficial aesthetic, where rapid impressions without essence, leaves the human to the mercy of the market sects. We seek and advise to go further, to go deeper. An attitude that requires time and commitment.

The passionate explorer, under his diving helmet full of concern and will, from the deepest darkness he perceives, that space becomes an illusion to be revealed… To delve into the world and into one’s self requires that a certain distance is to be taken.

This distance that is perceived by the spectator, who scrutinizes and investigates the world, is relative: it’s found in that latitude that is distant and cautious, even so he continues immersed in, what he studies, the world.

On having gone into depth, even from this uncomfortable perspective, it is possible to perceive authenticity.

These imaginary transitions are an invite to enter the cave and are inspired by the concern of the first creators of images and meaning, in the caverns. Like a way of delving into one’s own self, into fears, desires, wishes and with the purpose of expressing these emotions to describe the world.

This human being, from the caverns, penetrated the depths of the Earth just as he did with the inner of his mind.

He was dedicated to exploration.

In these times it becomes necessary “to delve”, to know about the magic of particles, that interact in the background, to return to science and to transit the cavern, to feel and find albino resources that beat, that haven’t seen the light and cry out to be, they clamour… like new ideas that should be brought into the light.
