Zeno's Paradox

Zeno, a Greek philosopher said that a flying arrow is actually not moving, which is known as Zeno's Paradox. The leaf in this photo looks still in the air and symbolizes the very Zeno's paradox. I'd like to represent by this photo is that the falling leaves which looks still in the air is, in a cloer look, actually connected to s spider's thread. The superficial significant(what can be seen in a superficial look) symbolizes disconnectedness but inherent signifié(what i'd like to show) means most precarious connectedness to our modern life, which is nothing other than the anxiety in modern life.
