"It is not possible to step twice into the same river, it is not possible to come into contact twice with a mortal being in the same state, but due to the impetuosity and the speed of change it disperses and collects, comes and goes." (Heraclitus)

I came back to the bridge over the dam near my home and I tried to consider it not only an artifact, developed to channel water and produce energy, but also as a machine through which watch the flow of time. I shot sequentially for a few minutes; a brief and fascinating journey also, and above all, between different conceptions of time: static, rhythmic, changeable and deceptive.
The project is articulated into images composed of a series of frames that capture the flow of water and, together, the passage of time. The chronological sequence of frames sets, in the transience of the single instant, the foaming and the swirling.
The vortices formed by the current remind me the screwing of the golden spiral, which often occurs in nature. Hence the decision to compose serial images, ordered by an increasing number of frames according to the Fibonacci gold sequence, which opens the series. I chose to deal with the theme of change through serial images because seriality is closely linked to the concept of space and time in photography.
The suspended ending refers to the title of the project, emphasizing the impermanence and the impalpable and unstoppable progression of time.
