Details about work or recent projects

Imagine a glass which, in an effort to take off, has split down to its base with the risk of losing its position, a glass bored with the dim light of cupboards in which, put away among its silent fellows, waits for action. Let us imagine a glass freed from the constraints of its primary function thirsty for that emptiness which gives wings. In becoming almost immaterial it tries to fool gravity with dazzling rays of light.
