This work is about quantum mechanics and the lives we will never live. Here we see a box with a layer of white packaging chips on the bottom, resembling the unknown and undefined in the middle of a brown square universe.

The box is opened, suggesting there was something precious inside but you missed it and now it’s gone and you will never know what it was like. This piece speaks about the uselessness of ‘what if’. The photo is taken from above to recreate the experience of a live audience for the reader. The ensemble was put in front of apartments, and when people would find it they would not know what to do. It’s that feeling you have sometimes when someone tells you the truth.
