deprem oldum. BY @MerchantCoppola

Tremor BY @a_tchuca

Andressa Furletti has created a performance video piece that is both captivating and heartbreaking. The use of the body as an instrument for storytelling the abstract emotions and the physicality of an earthquake was an excellent choice. Her performance evokes distress, helplessness, loss of control. With the audio pairing, this piece envelops the viewer in the building chaos of the moment.

This video piece is available as an edition of 100 at 5 XTZ, 89.95% of primary sales going to the fundraising contract.
