Shot in Budapest, this is the videoclip for Castadiva song, taken from the Dalla parte di Schwa Cd.
Liquid eye, liquid look. Water as a natural element from where monsters, sounds, looks floating in other looks/eyes emerge. Water concealing treasures, bridges, cities. Underworlds inhabited by monkeys, dragons, secret "thoughts". A geometry of porticos is furrowed by the strokes of a swimmer wrapped in fluid viscosities. Rooms where cherubs and abbesses hover. Water as a separating/sheltering element, amniotic fluid of the dead.
Double airiness, in the end, or a liquidness breathing air.
A glassy snapshot fades, again, into the water.
