The sculpture crawls over the viewer’s memory and through its structure that allows transitions in space, it adds memories, fears, hopes and desperations to its form, along with an emphasis on destinations. This form is also a transition in time which establishes the physical integrity.
Door is a metaphor that I quote from Dostoyevski to provide an access to the viewer's perception: "Doors which do not close are like a mortal wound; everybody, even almsman, has a place to go, a door to enter, and it is this hope that keeps humans alive.
