The viewer is presented with a school of fish frozen in time. They are susceptible to the environment and their fragile nature is quickly exposed as the inevitable, physical changes begin to take place. The once solid mass shrinks and fades before us. We are no longer able to grasp it in our hands as it slips away and ceases to exist.
