The persistent falling down of a drop and its settling on the ground; its obsessed and cyclical representation as expression of a warning and a scanned representation of Time which tries to free himself from oblivion and silence.
This piece was born by the necessity to confront myself with the memory of Anna Politkovskaja (30 august 1958 –  7 october 2006), with her words/actions and her murderer still unpunished; this is not a celebrative piece but rather a way to affirm and amplify her presence.
