A dialogue between television sets that no longer have images, are not tuned in, and are prisoners of their broadcast schedules. Alchemical images as the chance for freedom (Il tuffatore di Paestum) for an imaginary voyage towards new inner sources of materials.

"To slow, to dilate space and time, for an ecology of vision and perception. To allow us to identify and formulate new languages while strengthening the centrality of human beings, to construct alternative ways of seeing of knowing, and of communicating" (Renato Pengo).
