"
Pieces of the public space of a city that is alive, moving, and that accommodates thousands of people, symbols and lights.

THE INFINITE FROM THE FINITE
Sasha Mumeli
3.35
"
I publicly asked that whoever wanted to participate in this project send me a video of what they saw through the window that caught their attention. This is the result of some of the images I received, recorded during confinement from windows in different parts of the world. It is a proposal that seeks to emphasise the presence of beauty as something inherent in life simply by being here and living this experience now. The infinite from the finite as an eternal truth that crystallises in different dimensions." SM
