Sequences of landscapes shot in an area of 60 km make up mosaics of places and reference axes constantly changing that do not exist in our surroundings. In this video bodies are not near or far. They are large or small. The horizons change and no space is independent from the viewer. Incorporating only memory, the landscape is seen in a variety of speeds and movements that apply a bodily logic to the vision.

That which flows beyond the walls of our horizon together flow on the same plane. Whilst the plans themselves also flow. Horizons change. Every living being is inside its own bubble which contains everything visible to them and their space maintains the solidity of their structure. With Cannot be anything against the wind the view is an individual projection onto a site, the action is the individual or collective use of an environment, and the landscape is a view without action. The sky in this video is used as a natural "blue screen" and the sequences of each landscape, composed with a multilayers system, create a place that does not exist in reality.
