This installation encapsulates the moments of loss or missed connections and creates an object hood to those memories. Each string acting as lines in a spatial network are a metaphor to a duration in time and its existence in space at that moment. The fragmented tags spread over the lines reference those singular moments of contact. A memorial for the mark social interaction leaves on time and history.
