‘Everything and Nothing’ is a journey through Barcelona both in front of and behind
the eyes of the main character. We see how she is made of flowing and changing textures
from different sources of water around the city and how she blends with the other
textures that she encounters.
At the beginning our protagonist is watching the beautiful Barcelona sky filled with towers at the site of the Olympic games in 1992 on Montjuic hill. She then begins to absorb the background layer behind her before beginning her journey.
We then shift back to the perpective of our character and watch her walk, barefooted,
along a mosaic-like ground texture. This is a mosaic along La Rambla in the city centre
that was created by Joan Miró. Her travels through the centre suddenly merges with
another location further out and as she looks up she finds herself looking at the
fascinating structures of Parc Guell.
As the character merges with the earth and rock of the structure she notices a light in her
hands; it seems to be glowing in her palms and looks like it is showing the city far below
her. It then grows and expands out from the hands entirely, taking over the world in front
From there she is now standing above the city, in front of the sunset, and she opens her arms to accept all that the city has offered her. We see that as she concentrates all of the textures that she has had contact with now flow through her.
In the end the combination of all that she has experienced flows away, including the
city around her, leaving her as only an outline until she too fades away. From everything
