The Time Machine series is a photographic exploration of Bauhaus and Art Deco caracoles (spiral stairways) in Budapest, Hungary. The series captures these unnoticed architectural masterpieces from a different perspective, evoking the idea of an infinite vortex that feels out of this world.

It's as if one was standing between two points in space and time, as space and time themselves lose meaning. Getting lost in the shapes, the spiral, facing a portal that leads to another time, another place, perhaps another universe.
