Por um Fio, 2012 – By a Thread
Video projection, 600 x 100 cm
Just watching a tightrope walker on high trying to maintain her balance becomes a “tightrope act” of perception, verging between reality and virtuality, security and uncertainty, balance and reeling. Por um fio (By a Thread) conveys the extreme risk involved in a walking a tightrope—an allegory for a fragile equilibrium that could easily be upset.
