On Episode II

Following the rules of the first episode and the series, “69 episode II” deals with the relationship between Man and Nature.

The first part of the work is inspired by a review of a photo sequence by Duane Michals, made in 1968, entitled “Paradise Regained”.Through the narration of 6 photos, a young man and a woman in a modern apartment go back to nature, shedding all their clothes as the houseplants around them grow larger and larger, becoming an Edenic garden.

The second episode of 69 reverse this narration, starting from the Edenic garden to a scene with strong suggestive and surrealistic elements that suggest us an idea more realistic than Michals’, where Nature, ruling with its frameworks, restore the consequences of Man actions.
