The body stands still, the gaze is distant. The whole weight leans on the left leg, while the right arm raises an ice cream cone. Time passes and the color slowly starts to melt, it blends, it waters the fingers, the palm and then the arm, beyond the elbow, down below. On one hand, the quote of the Statue of Liberty recalls a source of liberation, on the other hand, the melting of the ice cream shows a tragic and ironic situation at the same time. The action points to a blind alley, nobody will come, but even if someone came, they would not want to be there. Nothing happens but the evidence of time passing by, the glorious magnificence of the pleasure of being now. Credits: T-space studio
