THE BUCKET TRILOGY
In a building site, the bucket is the host.
It’s always there for us – making deliveries, making number, making difficult decisions or just making a stand. It can be the making of a mason! But most important, it helps making the city a better place.
Sometimes it’s heavy, embracing sand or water, combining materials and tools; sometimes it’s dancing with the wind… It establishes hand connections but it also can be forgotten.
Bucket, you are always in the making!
A bucket’s life it’s not easy. It’s always running around, like a messenger, carrying things.
This traveling shot through the city’s infrastructural maintenance and rehabilitation enhances the relation between man and bucket, which is based on rhythm, snapshots and chiaroscuro.
