Ecdysis is the natural process through which reptiles and insects moult, shedding their old skin or exoskeleton. A slow-moving camera meanders through a 3D reproduction of the Amazon Rainforest's topography, creating an abstract fluidity that simultaneously evokes a profound sense of vastness and the outstanding likeness to the texture of an animal's skin.

The animation was developed using the 3D reproduction of the Amazon basin's topography, created within the framework of the Ríos Trilogy project.

The sound composition was made entirely from field recordings in the Amazon using field recordings. The sound elements are extracted from the dense jungle environments and transformed into melodic formations and rhythmic patterns through processing methods.
