In this work I deal with the repetition of one idea in motion.

The more the idea circulates, the more it becomes recognizable.

It circulates as time does around us: indefinite, unreal, seemingly visible in its effects. It offers the same events to us, for us to act as we wish. It shows almost the same things, never in the same way. The movement circulates like a structure does around us and above. Being it real or invented, it affects us. For once I decided to become the structure. I became the Solar System. I became time. I decided to go back and see the same things from another angle. I realized this is not more ambitious than any other thing one could do. Anyone could do it.
