History of the Spine

Created by Masha Zhukova and Nina Kay

History of the Spine is a timeline, an interpretation of the feeling of being part of the inescapable world. It is about timelines within timelines and about a scientists attempt to investigate crosses, parallels, curvy unconsciousness and human determination.

"Building together and alone. Vertebrae hold one. One holds humanity in a world where we are eating, loving, shitting, shopping, clubbing, believing, searching and judging.
Historically seen, who can say no to happiness? Let’s celebrate the human intuition".
