Nine paper sheets are installed in parallel about one yard beneath the ceiling of the space. They overlap gently and form a layer that covers the entire ceiling. The result is a soft and irregular white surface with painted black lines on top of it. The lines alternate between abstract forms and figurative expressions.

After focusing on the faces for too long, one is forced to look away, as the body has become dizzy due to the rather unnatural way of standing and tilting the head backwards. What remains is the memory of what you have seen only a few minutes before.
