“The act of falling: nowhere” is video about the trajectory of a “falling-on-earth” meteorite which crosses the 360° screen installation never crashing into the ground.
The falling meteorite crosses several panoramas, all of them are places from the Atacama desert of Chile. The paradox is the place: In Chile there are severals observatory stations and radio telescopes which are constantly monitoring the universe, while a meteorite is passing right there, pretty fast and pretty close to the structures. It’s like a sign. We see also the ”Moon valley”, a vulcano 6000mt high. A leftover smashed truck. these are all views, letter from a “on the road” trip in the desert.
I got inspiration from the movies by Inarritu: in the city or the wood suddenly the director wants to insert a falling meteorite. It’s a comment, a note, it doesn’t involve with the story of the movie, but it’s there, reminding us anything can happen while we are following our dreams, or solving our problems.
