lenght | aprox. 24 min.

Unfolding is the action of disclosing, of gradually revealing something. A mysterious moment is implicit : expectations rise as the object is uncovered. In the moment just before the object is recognized we attempt to postpone revelation and prolong our expectations. The body, in its imminence of revelation, assumes the dimension of our imagination and experiences a metamorphosis.
