Beautiful things fading away

Beautiful things fading away is about relationships; how we and things are structured through the relationships we belong to, not only in the present but also in the past; how a spiritual experience, a distant place, a past relationship or a person who is no longer there continue to resonate in us, still shaping the present. Beautiful things fading away is simultaneously a sensation and an atmosphere, and each work within it is a fragment of it.
