Magna Mater is part of a cyclus of compositions by Maria de Alvear, that explore the origin of culture and being human: where is it that the aninmal within ourselves starts to be human, when did human went from mere uttering of mere grunts and sounds to find to intonation, song, and language? Where is the point where sating a fact becomes narration, and where does narration transform into myth? Who is it we got our first knowledge from, and how was it implated into human consciousness? Ana de Alvear’s video follows this story by focusing on th aspect of passing time, fading and growing.
