After the outlines of the continents were embroidered, the sphere was entirely covered with the threads following the movements of the high-altitude winds. The sphere itself is the result of a complex project whose story is illustrated in parallel: in collaboration with writer Matteo Meschiari, for each progressive “growth” of the sphere, an exchange of texts and notes took place between Losi and Meschiari.
