This piece explores the projection of the past and the future in the vertical growth of space. The golden thread changes the aesthetics and perspective of each photo with the light and angle of the viewer, capturing the ephemeral that is the human time. Through repetition, the thread marks the positive and negative space, making memory and destroying it by distorting the original image.
