Local Infinities

Hidden City

Three white sacs hang from beams. A blind woman enters, guiding herself along a moving wall that leads her into a box and closes her in. Layers of the sacs peel off, revealing a person inside each one. They emerge and descend to the floor only to recreate confining and defining box structures around themselves. The individuals join and combine their structures into one shared space.
