Fireflies and stars

Fireflies in the forest and stars in the night sky connect us with the wonders of childhood and fairytales.  As creatures of mystery and magic, fireflies invite the viewer to follow their luminous trail in the delicate dance between light and dark. In relation to stars, they define a nocturnal atmosphere where microcosm turns into macrocosm and vice versa.  As human beings we naturally found ourselves at the crossroad between these two dimensions.  Apart from the sea and the sky, blue is the rarest color in nature.  It is linked with eternity, supernatural beauty, religious transcendence, the beyond.
