This graphic essay explores the saturation, the movement and the repetition of the word TORPOR as an image. Opposed to this process, the photographic images – Visible and Future – were covered by layers of reticles and offset ink, with the intention of weaving the direct relation between the imagery omnipresence of everyday life (opacity) and the state of torpor as a symptom (frequency).

The publication Torpor was launched in Plana Festival 4, "Black and White" edition, at Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS), São Paulo, Brazil, January 15th to 17th, 2016.
