This work investigates on emotion gesticulation as a process of human expression and aims to articulate it as a language that is able to create a discourse.

 When the gesture is presented in its purest form, we appeal to the immediacy of expression, leaving out the intervention of reason and giving place to an incomplete ‘Self’ that, controlled by impulse, deploys some sort of schizophrenia where emotions blend as a counterpoint, in four voices.

 The video shows the gestural developments interpreted by an actress. The contents are projected and used as a sheet music for sound improvisation, combining the artwork and bringing it to life.
