This work tries to inaugurate a conversation with the earth.
The fish-line would break if you tugged too strong. It is necessary to keep the balance and feel the weight of the earth. Then, you will know that you can never “catch it”.
This is really to re-acknowledge how great the earth is and to have more respect for it.
Urbanism brought fewer and fewer opportunities to communicate with nature and that is one reason why we are lost . Lack of communication foments this unbalanced relationship between humankind and nature. It’s time to talk to the earth again.
