G. illustrates a phantasmagoria of images and words, of never-ending cycles-the ebbing tides of change and consequence-:Taking a thinker and turning into a fighter, taking a fighter into a ghost." 

G. shows that all living things must abide the most basic of the natural laws: the principle of diminishing returns. When ghosts can't be turned into nothing -our efforts stop offering us options- and there won't come a second second chance, the beast that derives sustenance from all that strives for sustenance, returns.

It also meets us with La Fuga's second of the three great monsters: the Euroboros. Please, give it a warm welcome. Be kind: surrender to it all of your ghosts.

L. presents an infinite fall through an ever-unfolding space tunnel, whose walls are made up of thousands of hexagonal cells, tessellated into a graphene-like matrix. Each cell displays one of the more than 10,000 photographs taken during the Apollo Mission Project, continuously tightening the coil wrapped around the viewer.

Throughout its development, L. is a rather precise visual metaphor of a human birth canal -this hypnotic, vertiginous rushing into nothingness -illustrated by the rushing images of humanity's greatest empress- reveals its ultimate purpose: L. was not the birth of any human being, but rather the collision trajectory described by one last nuclear bomb.
