The final piece will be a 3D animation in video format, using Miguel Ángelo sculpture "La Pietà" as a reference to Renaissance idealism, aiming to portray the ideal of beauty and youth.

In the novel "Thousands of Eyes," death is presented as a ritual to release a mysterious entity capable of transforming the world through a sports car.
The scene will unfold in a 3D space filled with flowers, plants, skin, metals and technological remains. Each element's design will blend the technological with the organic.
