Video creation: Traces in the Sandon the second floor of the Archaeological Museum until 9th January
The project shows where there was a path created as a notebook on the ground, like the notes of a naturalist: drawing, photographing and editing; mixing the artistic vision and the social, environmental and sustainable sensitivity of the surroundings of the coast of Cartagena.
The video creation is an attempt to analyze between yesterday and today through our interventions and traces in time.
