Luminous beings populate the oceanic abyss, with capacities that have allowed them to face adversity in a seemingly uninhabitable territory. In Abysmal I explore the duel and the present of the survival skills involved in that journey. From the appropriation of a veil that belonged to a woman in my family, I contacted the traces of faith in my own experience and the strategies I developed to face the challenges of transforming my consciousness to be present. In the rhythm of the threads I observe the tissue to which they give form and the form as an object of multiple readings.
