Artistic approach

Un tout parallèle 

Within the philosophy of materialism, according to Lucretius and Epictetus, form may be defined as an enduring bond. 

As all atoms fall parallel to each other, if one should deviate from its trajectory and come into contact with another for a long enough amount of time, a new world will be born. 

Every mountain is an invitation to climb, a desire to reach a transcendent whole. This is an instant of tension — an uncertain equilibrium — before any major collision. All this in hope of a change of form.
