The work was commissioned by the festival and will be a hibrid between installation, study lab, living space and also a place for rituals surrounding the theme of death. In the installation, inside an old warehouse with 14sqm and 10m high, the space will have the floor covered with dirt and, in the center, there will be a Cannabis tree 2 meters high, and also rings made of organic materials hanging from the ceiling, measuring from 1,5 to 10 meters of diameter, inside whitch there will be flowers, germinating seeds, rotting fruits. There will also be ceramic vases, some filled with cereal brew and others full of water.
Beyond these materials that will be in constant transformation with the passing of time, the work also counts with the participation of sound artist Vivian Caccuri.
