The artwork is in a collection of Ibrahim Kodra Swiss Foundation scince October 2019.

The work shows the contemporary postmodern world, where people are surrounded by void of lies, phantasms and simulacra. Philosopher Jean Baudrillard uses the term hyperreality to describe reality, calling it just a simulation of the real world. It is the environment where soul is desperate to survive, trying to find truth and stability. The thin strip of light in the work symbolizes this truth and people reach out towards it in order to survive.
