Message in a Bottle

This piece is part of a photo series depicting the organic nature of time, time flattened and distilled on a cellular level. Message in a Bottle, with its sea glass green color and translucent sheen, embodies the concept of lost memories and thoughts that, once embraced by time, dissolve. Thin spinal lines make up the backbone of this piece, a neural network conveying and shattering emotional memories. Somewhere in this slice of the fourth dimension, a message is retained.
