Nuno Vasa is known for sculptures, paintings, installations, and performances that express his personal reflections on quotidian life and surroundings, human relationships, and the human condition. His works are completed by spectators and their relationship with the objects, as well as the installations that he creates. Vasa's cork cable car is an homage to beloved Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) and Prazeres 28, the cable car he refers to in his poems. The cable car is constructed from black cork affixed to a metal base, inscribed with Pessoa's adage "MAN IS THE SIZE OF ITS DREAM."
