We are looking for a gaunt word, which speaks through the raw, naked images. We try to play, to reproduce the sound of that kind of word that has a meaning.
The sound opens a passage in the flesh, a secret image, it passes through the body like a wave, modifying it. By speaking, we bring the world to our mouth, by listening, we receive it in our ears. The scenic space is the theatre of word's drama. The sound creates a scene where the matter has no more weight, and sight goes through his frequency. Video images don't explain the words but they make their meanings more complicated, like translating from an ancient language in which every therm, combined with the others, assumes a different value.
