NEBULA

 

 

I saw the Aleph from every point and angle, and in the Aleph I saw the earth, I saw my own face and my own bowels; I saw your face; and I felt dizzy and wept, for my eyes had seen that secret and conjectured object whose name is common to all men but which no man has looked upon: the unimaginable universe.

Jorge Luis Borges

 

Dust

NÉBULA is the suspension of the time that reveals a change of cycle, the instant that embodies an inner journey.

Alejandro Palomino extends a film body dream in order to set us in a fiction environment that becomes palpable. Hence, there is a melancholic man discovering the universe, accepting himself as part of a whole, feeling the vital energy before imploding.

NÉBULA is the constellation of portraits in motion that confirm the need of looking within ourselves to discover the cosmos and find our own Aleph, that Time that twists to concentrate the totality of time in a single point.

 

Star Dust

ROY BATTY is an artificial being that replies forms in order to connect reality and fiction, to demonstrate that perhaps nothing is original, that perhaps everything is repetition.

 

As the character of Blade Runner from which he takes his name, Roy Batty reminds us that our fears can come true, that all the moments that we lived "will be lost in time like tears in the rain", which once, too late, we'll hear him say:

"If you could see what I have seen with your eyes!”.
