21 sheets of paper are held on a black wall with the help of pins. Each sheet works as a screen on which an image is projected, namely, a hand that endlessly writes and erases one letter, which is different on each sheet of paper. When looking at all the “screens” together, it becomes apparent that one sentence is formed and that it repeats itself over and over again (“History repeats itself”). Yet some minor changes in the writing are constantly altering the sense of the phrase. .
