    Based on the song “RÍO”, a composition by Santiago Jiménez published on “OÍA Sudáfrica” (2011), the second album of the mysterious colombian band “Benjamin”. CARBOGRAMA is the result of an experiment in which multiple arts converge: music, dance, drawing and video. The starting point is the continual movement of Alejandra Gissler, an improvisation within which her body becomes the means to convey the sensations of every minute. Her movements are recorded by Damián Alquichire and processed instantly, at first as photographs, then as drawings, attempting to reveal the material passing of time- the central theme of the work.
