    “Papiroflexia” brought a tear to my eye, it was beautiful.

  2. Xeni Jardin says:

    @L124RD, we (BBtv crew) felt the same way. Joaquin’s work really is stunning, and intimate, and personal like that. Love it.

    Absolutely beautiful. Thanks to Joaquin for sharing his wonderful talents with us.

    Papiroflexia is great! I don’t mind the sound of the cars passing on a distant highway but having the traffic noise next to my room is a really disturbing.
