While rotating on its axis at 1,670 kilometers per hour, the planet earth

orbits the sun at 108,000 kilometers per hour.

Light, traveling at a speed of 300,000 kilometers per second, is energy

created by wave motion.

Through innumerable births and deaths, all species pass life on to

succeeding generations.

The never-ending cycle of creation and destruction.

Accumulating in moments, days and nights, seasons and years, time passes in

a spiral motion between the poles.

In a multitude of layers, traces of time are captured within a single sheet of

film fixed in the same position and exposed for a long time to the

contrasting lights of time and day.

The time we human beings can perceive is our notion of time in our life

cycle. This is of course only a part of the whole movement of nature, but,

forever caught up in it, we never awaken.

The glories of our predecessors fertilize the next generation and then vanish.

Into the unfathomable passing of time.
