(Look at you touch you from the moon)





  • Synopsis


Looking at touching you from the moon, it is based on the worlds of ephemeral spaces and its encounter with the humanization that is given to the elements that lack it, specifically on the natural satellite of the Earth the Moon, which in its poetics end up taking life and as such actions, which are within a system that creates connections between different individuals and their worlds, whether internal or external, between beings or elements that become beings with human qualities. It is the monitoring from the remotest distance to each individual who carries their identification code, where it obviously leads to control and the unique identity of each being, taken to numerical algorithms, as a factor in the identification and control process, which can be derived in a means of censorship in the future, losing the autonomy and freedom of each individual.
