Proxima is a spatio-temporal loop, a search for the infinite. It is a vision, as an echo to the poem of Charles Baudelaire The Abyss.
We are a prisoner between the two unknowns that are birth and death, in the immensity of the world, between our disproportionate impulses of Eros and Thanatos. Each second brings its share of illusions.
We think we can grab the glimmer that would tell everything, explain everything. But it moves away ever more, and when it comes to rest at last, it delivers nothing of its intention, or about what would be on other side. This shirking light represent that feeling of total frustration we have, sensing that, this infinite world, we could almost grasp it. A least we have this illusion within ourselves.
