The piece was produced starting from a consideration around those who live in a Southern country whose primary features are contradictions and diversity; making small references to authors who questioned various classification systems – Georges Perec, Jorge Luis Borges and Umberto Eco – Ornitorrinco (Platypus) proposes to listen to sounds that tangle this issue and point at the complexity of the questions: how much North is in the South? are we everywhere?
