Mistérios Negros

Dark Mysteries

Pedro Lino

The dark mysteries are trachyte domes of irregular black rock with sharp ends that originated in the eruptions that occurred in these Islands. The film stages a journey to the centre of the Earth, both in a figurative sense and literally. Through landscapes found in the Azores, this work addresses the opposing notions of scale and time (both geological and human), going after the forces of Nature that seem alive (and threatening), and reflecting on its relation with Man.
