Silkworms spinning silk on fragments of blue sky reflected on the broken mirrors they sit upon, their endless strands of silk spun in the figure of 8 resembling clouds and stitches that slowly but surely sew them together. As the pieces of mirrors on the floor reflect the film projection on to the walls around it, the silkworms seem to be undertaking the cosmic task of mending and bridging the azure skies that hang above all of humanity.
