This work refers to the science fiction film Tetsuo: The Iron Man, by Japanese director Shinya Tsukamoto. Prego appears as a decadent superhero flying over the outskirts of Bilbao, with the numerous, monotonous sequences of these actions taken by four multiple viewpoint cameras and later edited by leaving visible cuts between fragments. This cinematic technique, in which action is suspended, sees the artist allude to time, the transience of the moment and the legitimacy of multiple points of view of one sole action.
