À-Terra-Dor (original title in Portuguese that means at same time To-Earth-Pain and Startling) functions as a metaphorical attempt to rewind time, to circumvent the inevitable in order to corrupt the natural degradation of matter. With this work, the purpose is to transform a natural chronological run through an imagined cure for the death, reflecting on the constant putrefaction of our matter, emphasizing, in a snapping way, our stay as it is always changing and how the materials are always in a process of recombination.
