Thin strands of hot molten glass, spun into a single thread, are collected and accumulated as if spinning memories, and begin to show new expressions.


These strands that are all created in a similar method can yield different results, with their own unique distortions and misalignments. Similarly, one’s memories, experiences, sensations, and the physical body all aggregate to form the individual.
