“Encounters” it’s the sequel of Interactions. The exploration of the city during the night continues after the series about relationships between nature and articial, with a investigation on who lives the city and night. Portraits of the lost souls related with a glimpse of the city where the encounters take place.
Is a declaration of love to the night-cloaked city, when each of its parts appears under a new (dark) light. Places shift and show the subtle equilibrium between the restful calm and the unsettling fear we feel in the dead of the night.
This sequence tries to show the city’s soul: shifting, unstable, maybe clearer in the dark. The places we usually inhabit have their own genius loci, sadly neglected in the usual hustle and noise that absorb all of our attention and interest. Objects, people and places are alive, and yet frozen by the flash in a single moment in which common things regain not just beauty, but something unreal, dreamlike.
A journey into the dream of an asleep city, for us to share.
