An arm reaches out from the bottom left of the frame to touch a sandy-colored rock wall. The arm has a long sleeve white shirt, the rock wall has grooves and marks of various depths. The image is slightly blurred, indicating that it was taken while the camera-holder was in motion, as if walking.

Timelines for the Future: Christine Hope Sandoval

Three bodies face away from the viewer. Each has its left hand raised in the air. They are either headless or their heads are bent below their shoulders. They are surrounded by a dark red fog, and red, featureless faces peek out from behind the bodies. The background is molted greens with a pink layer on the top edge.
