Departing from the most simple unit of drawing and geometry - the point - the video is constructed from the brutal act of perforation.
The use of a simple pin that trespasses and pierces irreversibly the sheet of paper has as much of violent as of beautiful - for the word that is written, for the percussive sound, and for the strange crossing of light.
"Did I hurt you?" remit us to a universe related to the questioning of the frontiers of perversion in the most private human relationships. In what way do we relate to others in the field of affection, of desire, and of unconfessible violence?
