Searching for Roots

Perhaps only a few things can leave you more vulnerable, presenting you the opportunity to be more honest with yourself than writing a poem and publishing it for the world to read. It opens the door to the depths of your soul and exposes yourself to perhaps not being understood.But it is also an act of liberation, where the chains are transformed into verses. "Searching for roots" is an immersive artwork that uses augmented reality to bring the spectator on a journey through the painting, revealing a lot more than the eyes can see. 

This piece 1 of 1 was created using as inspiration the poem in Spanish called "Sirio" where the author deals with the loss of guidance and the search for meaning.
