"Wet Light" is a work that stems from research on the relationship between light and white noise, using water as a connection. The artwork draws on both real locations and sets, as well as the technique of found footage, incorporating letters and images purchased at flea markets.
Thus, the narrative engages in a dialogue between the flow of water and the communicative relationship among the individuals and scenes depicted in the story.

"Wet Light" is a work that stems from research on the relationship between light and white noise, using water as a link. The piece proposes an experimental approach to working with 16mm film. The artwork draws on both real locations and sets, as well as the found footage technique, utilizing letters and images purchased at flea markets. Thus, the narrative engages in a dialogue between the flow of water and the communicative relationship between the people and scenarios depicted in the story.
White noise blends with aquatic sounds as both are stochastic processes, visually merging with white light, which is the luminous phenomenon equivalent at a physical level to this sound. Additionally, through the use of various techniques, the concept of film grain has been explored as if it were water droplets invading the image at a given moment, with white noise in the background serving as a sonic torrent guiding the narration. In contrast, there are descriptive sounds to add depth to certain images.
Visually, there is a poetic intention to have water reflect in light rather than the other way around. To achieve this, the images have undergone a process of destruction and construction that has led to the desired visual effect. This process was made possible by using magnifying glasses during filming, modifications to the shutter speed and camera pressure plate, as well as subsequent pseudo-solarizations and corrections in digital processing.
This project falls within the scope of previous works such as "The act of resistance," which is part of the author's personal exploration towards a filmic poetry where the medium takes center stage.
