A face. Tangible presence of our existence, of our flesh doomed to dissolution, object among objects, being here and now. We are clinging to an image condemned to describe.
Constantly suspended between this body and the scene, the fire burns our flesh that melts, and the passage of time.
We forget our inadequate bodies. What remains is a light mask, which flies, which moves to every wind, wrap an absence, a description of a lost identity, portrait of an imagination that takes us elsewhere. Return to outline our traits, now indefinite, lost, little tangible. Skeletal lightness.
