The description of an unknown continent is narrated from the leftovers found in this land. The discovery of the ruins of a museum triggers the reconstruction of History. Through the fragments found, a narrative is built telling about the transformations in an unknown place’s ecosystem.
Divided into four chapters, each of them refers to a region of the continent: the area of geometric lagoons, the buried cities, a desert in place of a forest. What characterizes each region’s transformations are the marks of an extractive activity that led to the continent’s exhaustion.
The narrative of the video is akin to documentary films with a scientific and descriptive approach to a place where landscape simulations are designed to narrate a history of the past and to project future constructions. The sequence of images is made with animation and accompanied by an original soundtrack.
