The Rooted Heart Began To Change is an ongoing project that unveils a poetic and suggestive journey —exploring the existential uncertainties in the grieving process— by exhibiting the vestiges of time and mortality through the different facets of the relationship between nature and the self.
Nature is a place where temporalities far larger than our own exist, exposing a relentless, unforgiving enigma concerning the themes of spirituality and a sense of place. It arises as a catalyst element, to which human beings often hold on as a last resort in an avid search for their own significance.
By taking advantage of the suggestiveness of the landscape —as a comparative and representative backdrop in relation to the self— a metaphorical narrative emerges, portraying an atmosphere where the emotional ambiguities and the sudden changes that shape our existence are represented.
