Nuno da Luz, “One might say that a firework is nothing other than a tree or a big artificial flower that grows, blooms, and dies in the course of a few seconds. After that it withers and falls to the ground in unrecognizable shreds. Well then, let us take this firework and make it last a month, stretching the time element but leaving everything else as is. What we get will be a flower, with all the visual characteristics of other flowers. Or let us imagine the seed of a tree might explode like a bomb.”, 2015
