"LAVA" is a creation made by the two artists -mother and daughter- in social isolation from the investigation with projections of erupting volcanoes and wooden objects. It is a creation of movements, images and children that dialogues with the signs of the image of the volcanic lava that flows: hot, fast, destructive. But, at the same time, the power of fire and its relationship with renewal: it burns for a new life, to close cycles and make alternative alternatives from the ashes. These images are related to the constant changes that social isolation has caused us, to the characteristics "skin changes" and renewals - sometimes painful, sometimes pleasant - and the importance of recognizing the rebirths within us.
