String, acrylic, 4 canvases assembled

The three Moiræ, also known as Parcaæ or Norns, in Greek mythology were the white-robed incarnations of destiny. They controlled the metaphorical thread of life of every mortal from birth to death. They were three: Clotho, spun the thread of life from her distaff onto her spindle; Lachesis, measured the thread of life allotted to each person; Atropos, with shiny shears, was the cutter of the thread of life. In antithesis to this idea of predestination, is free will, capable of affecting our lives. Thus, there are four canvasses assembled on top of which the lives of many individuals flow. Each string colour is found in the background of one of the panels, as a mark of the many existences intertwining with one another, each held by a string.
