" [Paci] is aware of the leaks and impossibilities of our own experiencing of the most important aspects of common living, like death, encountering, narrating or sharing, and aims at approximating their realization for the viewer to raise the awareness of his/her limited perception of reality."
– René Block, Director, Museum Fridericianum Kassel
