The end since the beginning | 2013



I had a precious collection of hundreds of spools of silk linen that I came across in an old haberdashery. First, I used silk threads to embroider little French knots and then I freed them from their fixed support, reducing them to dust and transforming them into tiny balls of silk, like a bug returning to its cocoon.
