While in a coma, Paul is trapped in a never-seen-before world; somewhere between reality and fiction, between the conscious and the unconscious, between life – and his inner death. In the midst of the mysterious forest HAZOR, his shadow is escaping, leaving him behind and making him unable to awake from his coma. Paul has no recollection of what had happened, but deep down inside he feels a destructive guilt. Driven by these emotions, Paul goes on a quest to only dig deeper into his own subconsciousness and by doing so he gets involved in a conspiracy: a girl is manipulating his shadow in order to take her revenge and to kill him.

Biston Betularia is a moth that takes its name from the habit to rest on the trunks of birches, trees with white bark. With the advent of the industrial revolution began to be released into the atmosphere large quantities of dust resulting dark from the combustion of coal, the main fuel for cars of that time. In the industrial areas, the bark of trees (including birch), began to become darker because of the carbon in the air. The effect of this environmental change, caused the melanic forms of the Biston betularia (ie melanic Biston, darker in color) that acquired an advantage camouflage on the clear one. The white biston betularia survived, but the darker one rapidly became numerically dominant. This phenomenon - known as industrial melanism - has been of great help in understanding the mechanisms of natural selection lighting and today he serves as a litmus test of pollution. Exploring the history of this moth, Laura Gianetti and Miro Mastropasqua show us with this video the different nature of the transformation as an art-ificial way to survive and as a result of human greed. The title “everything makes sense in the reverse” is a quote from Jean Baudrillard’s book “Fragments. Cool memories III, 1990-1995”.
