I wanted to take the pressure of the earth as one takes the pressure of a human being to measure the stress we causes it. This is a metaphoric journey which will lead you from the centre of the earth to its surface, pushed by magma’s pressure, to be finally thrown to atmosphere though a geyser’s mouth.
