Lineage is a meditation on the spaces we drift inside of when we know a place intimately. The way a room’s geometry becomes a blank slate for our memory as we return there, day in and day out. It is in the cracks, lines, and circles that our time is collected and concealed. We become part of a space when we learn the shapes that will fall into the corners and beams, onto the walls. A rhythm of light and shape, dividing one another in time.
