Following the watercourse, the series of photos, Viaje de Jung (2017) came about which shows the ephemeral sunset on the river and documents the beginning of a night-time journey – at night the eels in this European river leave for the Sargasso Sea located in the Atlantic to the north-east of Bermuda–.

The descent to an inner sea as a journey to the unconscious is present in the collective imaginary, just like in so many myths like the story of Jonah and the whale. So, the sky turned into a river, in the channel proposed for the imagination in which normal reality is disrupted, rotated, and flipped by images of water and sky.
