Attempting to grope the immeasurable geometry of feelings, she loops on the perimeter of an impeccable shape, the square. The square does not condone any mistakes and drives the individual to the quest of a never-ending pattern, of a square within a square, within a square, on a seemingly infinite spatial existence in between our familiar dimensions. Persistently dancing on, in and in relation to a squared fractal-inspired structure in space, she conquests for the impossible: to infinitely continue creating the smallest square, searching to balance bewteen geometry of sentiments and vanity of human rationalization.

Are fractals the answer to inner human geometry?

* Research has been held with the valuable support of my peers, teachers and mentors of ArtEZ University, Master of Theater Practices, Arnhem, The Netherlands. Many thanks to all of you.
