“There was the beat – between appearing and disappearing – of a listening figure. The book took on board this experience of listening and the pursuit of a rhythm. In the duration in which the movement of images was captured, always in the same place, looking at Nature, it was sought – precisely and simultaneously – the same and the surprise.”
— Ana Mata
Ana Mata has an independent video installation and editing project with Catarina Domingues (1987) since 2018. This collective presents itself as chama | ficção and some of its productions are available in the Art Library.
