All things are cyclical, everything has an end; all things ultimately depart and expire before re-emerging or being reborn under a different form at a given time or place. Collapse, dissolution, renewal, transformation. A group of individuals tumbles into renewal, drawn hypnotically by an invisible force. An allegory of life in constant movement and transformation becomes progressively manifest. An abstract idea becomes symbolized by concrete gestures. Fall and recovery bring us back, ultimately, to the primary condition of Homo erectus.
