In the future, the world has become a dry, frozen and seemingly lifeless surface, where crystalline forms give rise to constructions similar to the ancient stalactites, although more organic, more alive, almost threatening. This salt desert is invaded by a strange current of liquid that gives life to what was once barren. However, a different kind of life from the one we know.

Science fiction serves as a vehicle for this cartographic and naturalistic story which, behind the description and representation of the future territory, hides a denunciation of the ecological reality of our planet. A critique between the impossibility of turning the disaster around and the responsibility of knowing that it is partly one’s own fault.
