Performed in the dark, 'Miguel Bonneville #8' addressed the issue of constant control: it seems almost impossible to be detached from everything and everyone - disappearing seems to be achievable only through death. The need to stop, to take time for introspection, to get into close contact with nature, in the midst of all the demands and consequences of capitalism, seems almost utopian. 'MB #8' is a reflection about disappearance and the skills of our imagination when it faces impossibilities.
