    Three brief visual meditations and a growing drawing propose an encounter with different natural elements and temporalities, evoking three distinct levels of perception: on the subsoil, water and rock enunciate a slow, geological time; between the leaves of a poplar tree, wind and fire conjure up a feeling of fleeting time and suggest a latent destruction; from the cut of a tree, the time is counted drop by drop while the sap is leaking out to the soil. 

    An idea of landscape is pursued within the interstices of those meditations: through dissonances and similarities an attunement of times is proposed - from the geological time to the time of vitality - in a quest for reflecting about our own perception of temporality. 

   Becoming: meditations was developed in april 2020, during the first lockdown in Portugal.

It was an invitation from 4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture (Creative Culture Europe) and it was supported by them.
