A baby sleeps peacefully in his cradle. Suddenly, beautiful shadows begin to climb on the curtains of the darkened room while the outside world seems to be completely forgotten or gone. The baby wakes up and watches mesmerized how the shadows dance around him. He smiles and waves at them. Miraculously, the world comes to life once again. Mikhail Gorobchuk creates a universe as wonderful as the dawning of perception and language.
