Planet Microbe

(12 x 30′)

They’re on our hands, in the air, on our dresses, in the water, even in places where we think there is nothing. And they’re a lot. So much that they represent the 90% of the biodiversity of our planet and their mass exceeds that of the other living beings. They’re microbes.

The purpose of this series is to show people the importance of microbes in our daily life, that they are not always patogenic and that they do not pertain only to the scientific field.

Extreme

(6 x 52′)

Life, from its origins on Earth, has extremely diversified and has been able to occupy almost all the places of our planet. Most of the living species live in places where environmental conditions can be considered as “normal”, but there are others that have adapted to environments specially difficult. Some of these living beings, both microorganisms and macroorganisms, have been named as “extremophiles”.

The series “Extreme” shows the different environments where this extremophiles live and the adaptations they’ve developed to do it.

Females of the species

(13 x 52′)

The social imbalance between Masculine and Feminine, so embeded in our culture, has completely impregnated our general vision on the environment and, of course, also on the different species of plants and animals living with us.

Favoured by this leaning view, masculin sex, the Masculine, has gained some conceptual importance while the Feminine has been relegated to an almost passive role, something like the receiver of the male’s initiative.

This series aims to show the natural world from a different perspective, from the female’s perspective.

La Catalunya invisible

(12 x 30′)

El món microscòpic és un complet desconegut per a la majoria de nosaltres, acostumats a grandàries i formes més acords amb les nostres i que són perfectament visibles amb l’ull nu. Pocs hem tingut l’oportunitat de treure el cap per ell, de descobrir l’enorme varietat de formes vives diminutes que pululen per les aigues i els sòls, l’activitat de les quals és una de les principals bases del correcte funcionament dels nostres ecosistemes i, en conseqüència, de tots nosaltres.

La serie “La Catalunya invisible” mostra, no només la bellesa i la singularitat de formes d’éssers microscòpics en la seva major part, sino també la seva activitat, les seves tècniques d’alimentació, les seves estratègies reproductives, el seu desenvolupament, les seves característiques psicològiques i la seva importància en els ecosistemes que configuren el nostre territori.

Monumentos de vida

La estratégica ubicación de la península Ibérica en el ámbito mediterráneo, puente de comunicación entre el continente europeo y el africano, ha propiciado que hayan sido muchas y variadas las culturas y civilizaciones que se han asentado en su territorio a lo largo de la historia. Íberos, celtas, fenícios, griegos, cartagineses, romanos, visigodos, árabes… todos ellos han pasado por aquí y han dejado su impronta arquitectónica.

Castros, acueductos, puertos, ciudades, murallas, castillos o catedrales nos permiten ahora evocar la historia y llevar a cabo un recorrido por los diferentes estilos arquitectónicos y artísticos que se han ido sucediendo en las diferentes épocas.

Sin embargo, con el paso del tiempo se han convertido en algo más. Han ampliado su propósito inicial y se han transformado en lugares que rinden un extraordinario servicio a otros muchos seres vivos. Unos seres vivos que, en muchos casos, son ahora sus principales habitantes y que han acabado por convertirlos en auténticos “monumentos de vida”.

Microlife

(30×5′)

Beyond limits of our vision, life appears in many forms and systems that, because invisibles, seem to be magic and powerful attractive.

Even the most tiny living beings have developed surprising strategies to adapt to the environment, and its behaviour is amazing for us: plants moving in the same way than animals, single-celled organisms that eat, move and reproduce in the same way that the bigger ones, predators using venom to catch their prey, animals able to divide themselves to convert into two different individuals…

That is, a new world, apparently very far from our, but responsible of the correct functioning of all the ecosystems of our planet.
