During a break, in which I wandered in a wheelchair for several months, I was forced to change my way of working. In this period, I began to think about the sentence "I am drifting around".
As nothing comes alone, by coincidence, at that moment I read several scientific articles about vertical migration and zooplankton. Every day, zooplankton make their way to deep water in the morning and rise as the sunsets. This process, known as vertical migration, is carried out all over the world by marine and freshwater plankton alike.
So I assumed this drifting off as my new existential position, not forcing myself to reach a certain point as I had previously done in the projects that preceded this one.
Adrift picks up fragments that float in my memory, images that have no place in the rigid parameters of my previous work and in everything that happens near my center of interest and appropriates and digests it all like a giant jellyfish with enormous tentacles. This position also allows me to recycle ideas and elements of my previous works.
To a large extent, Adrift, rather than a strict concept to define a specific project or work, is a state of consciousness (awareness).
I hope, from this state, to create a "strand” with my work from which I can develop several visions of the same idea from different angles in both their realization and their interpretation.
