video, color


#12.430.494 is the code of the death certificate of a tree in São Paulo, Brazil.

The video traces the felling of the tree, a Guapuruvu originating from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, first in reverse and then in the original sequence. We suggest initially a reconstruction, reconstitution, a feeling of salvation, of relief and serenity. In the second part of the video, instead, the tree is progressively cut down to create feelings of sadness, anger, displeasure.

#12.430.494 is the cycle of life and death, of construction and destruction, of dreams and reality.
