"Between earth and sky, between past and future, the fleeting present encompasses the only space where we truly exist. And with each passing moment, now becomes past and future steps in to be the new now - bringing with it yet another opportunity to grow, to evolve, to be. This piece is dedicated to the Magdas employees gathered here from different roots and backgrounds to find a new present for themselves."
