A glitch is an unexpected event, it creates a moment of uncertainty, a shift from the ordinary. This unique video is an exclusive artwork made for Cofra Group. It was created during the three months of quarantine, the global lock-down due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, a matter that has affected the lives of many. A circumstance that requires extra efforts from all us. A transition, like a glitch in the system, a change that is a call to action. An opportunity for new meanings, new values, new solutions, in one word, innovation. In our creative practice we do not fear the unexpected, we embrace it, we make it our strength, we challenge the instability, we enable new possibilities. And it is in critical times that more than ever we need creativity, revealing beauty, staying strong, in this historical, conceptual and emotional frame this video was made.
