The desire to want to feel owners of things makes us surround ourselves with elements that often turn into hindrances, into garbage. Then, over the years, it accumulates in the same place as if they responded to some type of attraction to each other, generating a kind of mausoleum of forgotten objects, which were once part of someone's life. Perhaps a very valuable object for someone, perhaps a piece of something larger that no longer exists.

This video loop was captured in an immense antique and second-hand shop that was full of objects from all kinds of cultures, ethnicities, eras and even it seemed that from other planets.
Mixing the two main aisles of this warehouse creates an eternal zoom-out that aims to evoke the passage of time and how things, despite being inert, prevail.

The ambience sound was recorded in the same place and slowed down 10 times. (by Coio).

Video loop (2mins)

*note: If you look at the center of this piece for 15 seconds or more and then look away, an optical illusion is generated. The longer you look at it, the more the illusion is perceived.
