Fissuras e Deslizes begins a series of works that have as principle a natural phenomenon in geology known as Mass Movements. They are movements of the rock or regolith caused by an instability in the system, which determines the detachment of the material on inclined surfaces. Mass movements and landslides, are denominations of erosive processes that occur in a long or extremely short time interval.

 

The concept of these natural events occurs in parallel with a research on the loss and / or shredding of archives and imagery. As this natural phenomenon occurs, images and information are unveiled giving rise to other interpretations of a landscape once untouched and static.
