This work traces the history of relations between the East and the West in the form of successive crypto-engravings. 3000 years of exchanges are covered in 55 seconds of video. In total, 10 crypto-engravings are superimposed to form 4 distinct chapters :

1 - Silk Road: The first 4 works take us back to the year 700 BC and the 3rd century

2 - Expansion : From the 6th to the 12th century (engravings 5, 6 & 7)

3 - Fusion of techniques and religious wars: This chapter takes us between the 14th and 18th centuries (engravings 8 and 9)

4 - Globalization : From the 19th to the present (last engraving)

In this way, each engraving, lasting approximately 5 seconds retrace 300 years of history.
