The Eternal Return

Every moment is a threshold, saturated with infinite opportunity. The Momentary is the epicenter of past and future. Our bodies pinpoint our understanding into a singularity, yet simultaneously, there are billions of other singular perspectives collecting experience. Our lifespans limit the duration of accumulation, and the eternal truth of these infinite fleeting moments transform into finite known trajectories. The moment, outside of perspective, is eternal, forever embedded into the ultimate trajectory of time. Each moment, as it transitions into memory, will be forever present in the current moment, and forever influence all moments to come.

Technology Used: OpenFrameworks, Arduino, Wireless Communication, IR Sensor.
