Elephant Protocol (Protocolo Elefante) uses the action of parting and isolation of an elephant in the imminence of his death as a metaphor for separation and exile.
This work is an investigation about the way the elements present in the environment where we belong (people, behaviors, languages, feelings, objects and relational interaction devices) are affected when we migrate separately to a diverse context far from such familiarities and symmetries of belonging.
The feeling of absence produced by this asymetrical encounter of identities is an important guiding principle to some key questions of our research: What is belonging or the need to belong? What is our definition of identity?
Elephant Protocol is a ritual of discontinuity and vestige, of understanding identity as entropy. It means sharing the solitude that defines us.
