"The seemingly uneventful and motionless moment when our future steps into us is so much closer to life than that other loud and accidental point of time when it happens to us as if from outside.” Rainer Maria Rilke
If it all relied on the speed, everything among and within us would be in continual disappearance. In the transparency, product of that swift imposition, of that cease to be fast for moments, there is undoubtedly hidden the desire to be disappearing always in eternal moments. In both cases, our inescapable invisibility hides in front of a reality that we either pass through or passes through us. If we submerge the scene, whatever its fading speed, we will slow it down until it will surely take it, to a still point, to a great blue of the suspended limit, where we can, without remorse, disappear and make it disappear. If we do that, the place of the event will be a peaceful place from which to wait, a stage where to refound the images and reflections that belong to us, the other selves that prowl in fright at the prospect of finally losing themselves in doubt. If we give water at speed, as well as our body transparency, it will be easier to recompose the pieces that make up the implausible puzzle of the real.
