ARCHIMÉTRIC tells the story of a character who lives on the outskirts of a village in La Mancha, whose house is a wagon-runner, surrounded by chickens and some of his artistic references, such as Malevich, Hugo Ball, Tristán and Zara.
ARCHIMÉTRIC works as a metaphor of the impossible, of a labyrinth full of monsters that prevent us from doing what we "believe in", what we "want to do", and that perhaps, without knowing it, are really helping us to crystallize what is important, reach that work, managing to make his own life a work of art.
