Life starts with a star being born inside the human condition (you) and ends with a cross marked behind your name by others (them). Mission completed.
What happens in between these vibrant points of reference is visualized as a complex fabric of various timelines.
We live our lives in different currents of existence. Thoughts, words, images and deeds accompany this process. All written out loud in The Book of Nothingness. A book of blank pages, with letters and illustrations wiped out by time itself.
Nothing remains but the essence of being there. What is left are the signs of the times, the colors of history and the stories we leave behind.
