This piece has two components, the rhino and the boy. The rhino is an analogue animation projected with a special overhead projector, it is a drawing made with acetate layers that moves its legs and head with 3 basic engines. The boy is a digital animation projected with a videobeam.
Annexed to the project, there is a series of portable scenes made up in the traditional manual technique of the cutouts, where a selection of irrational scenarios is proposed from the research of symbolic and archetypal images of classic mythology, the Middle Age and the Renaissance.
