“ILLEGAL contemplation” (00:03:18) by Rrose Present, Catalonia, 2017

Contemplation could be an act of sensitive rebellion.

An eye that unlearns laws from the gaze of a “colonizer”.

Yellow has become an illegal color in Catalonia because it is a symbol for the freedom of Catalan political prisoners.

The Spanish state can not prohibit the flowers of the mimosas from returning to bloom.

Like painting a time, with a playful montage of yellow sea caressed by the wind.

Homage to “Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws…” by Stan Brakhage and the Catalan Political Prisoners and Poems by my mother, Roser

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
