We've all experienced the feeling of loss. It's not necessarily connected to the physical loss of those close to us — it's sometimes caused by the inexorable transition of every particular moment from the category of “present” to the category of “past”. What do we all really have? The past is gone, the future isn't here yet and it looks like all that we have is a thin thread of memories and presentiments spliced together with instants of present sliding along. You can tie your necklace but you also can lose all beads — hold on to yours tight as life is so fragile and flies by so quickly!

This U-space designed by Valentina Serebrennikova, using the two paintings of Valeri Valran.
Technical realization of the project by Konstantin Pakhotin.
Soundtrack by Igor Korobko.
