Emergencia is a performative video inspired by the allegory of Plato's Cave, narrating the light seen by the prisoner outside the cavern.
Prisoner's first reaction at the view of mountains, lakes and fields is pure astonishment, and fear of the unknown, it tooks him a while to assimilate his new freedom.
The piece is questioning if this first primordial freedom is insight to everyone of us, and how can be reflected in a urban context, relegated to the lines and the spaces of the city.
