The merry-go-round is a human element that generates color, noise and movement, producing a total contrast with the peacefulness of the surrounding woods. Things get really attractive when dark, silence and absence bring to zero these two worlds of separation. After 7 p.m the recreational finds itself in the natural, and vice-versa; the two things eclipse themselves in the only possible moment of the day. Walking around the park during the day, looking for peace and silence, you get inevitably disturbed by acoustic and color pollution, people yelling. These images tell us about the moment when these two elements, “the disturbing object” and the surrounding environment, interact without problems.

Mute is probably the word that better summarizes this work, it reminds of “mutation” but at the same time is a word that belongs to consumer technology, televisions, radio, etc. It’s used to have silence.
