We will forever have a strong connection to our bodies and the skeletal structures that maintain our human structure. Seeing it recreated is a fascinating spectacle, since we can’t see the ones we possess.

The repetitive cycling pattern presents itself as morbid mutations of our inner constructions leaving us looking back for more.
