at first pupation is an old fruit crate that hangs with its topside facing backward on the wall. if you come closer you can look through the crevices of the wooden strips and perceive a body with dangling arms and legs. it isn’t possible to apprehend that being in its entirety, you only can get different narrow segments when you change your perspective. no, there is no head. at least there is a little light from an invisible source in it. of course there is a cable, the energy must come from somewhere (the socket should be somewhere else). slag lays on the ground exactly under the position of the box. it proejcts its shape like a shadow or because the slag fell straight out of the box.
