A subjective journey, made up of images, sounds and colors. A research on the creative process, on the possibility of creating a cinematographic, non-narrative story, starting from the works that a group of artists had previously created for an art installation. The camera explores, reacts, re-elaborates what it sees through the movements of the frames and then with the editing, trying to subtract every element of reality. In this way it takes the viewers point of view and allows them to create a completely new and personal image. Fragments of emotions, sudden changes of rhythm and colors, as in a kaleidoscope in which you can see a continuous intertwining of multiple stories, which will leave a trace on the viewers. As it happens in a dream.
