The special effects used in movies and television coupled with other production techniques have allowed living images to arise from an imaginary world that is not limited to reality. In the case of Valerie, her outstanding imagination created an awareness to see the world through science fiction.

Today we live in a time when reality is too heavy, it is better to take refuge in the world of fantasies.

AMAZING STORIES presents a new story made up of little stories where the characters are unified in time and space becoming oneself, there is no past, present or future, everything happens in an alternate time beyond our reality and occupies space place in the viewer’s mind. The different planes are interleaved or overlapping forgetting the rules of composition creating a scenario where everything becomes inexplicably known. These stories combine her own creativeness and take the innocence and perversion from Henry Darger’s personages.
