Overview

Walk in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes on a pale endless ground, sometimes above the clouds. The infinite white under my feet is only interrupted when it attacks the blue of the sky, in the distance of an endless and continuous horizon. Among so much immensity, solitude is absolute and silence, total. A seagull flies over my head, only to realize that I am standing on a thin layer of water that reflects everything around me. I walk above the clouds.

Highlights

Walking in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes on a pale and endless ground, sometimes on the clouds. The infinite white under my feet is only interrupted when it lashes against the blue sky, in the distance of an endless and continuous horizon. Among so much immensity, the solitude is absolute and the silence, total. A seagull flies over my head and then I realize that I am on a thin layer of water that reflects everything around me. I walk on the clouds.
