The intention was to explore the variations of light, focusing specifically on the details of nature in a constant transformation of the space, through the double exposition of images that were reflected in the windows of a greenhouse at the Ajuda Botanical Garden in Lisbon.

…was shot in black and white Super 8mm and is accompanied by a soundtrack of drumming and deep breathing.
