Through gestures, a landscape emerges, cobbled together and in motion. It testifies of a world crisscrossed by infrastructures that organize and cut—borders, pipelines, surveillance networks—yet also one striated by movements that evade capture—fugitive migrations, occupations, fatigue, accidents, leaks, rest. Movements of beings, things and restless materials, that leave traces and invite further breaks.
