The airplane is considered to be an animate object in this work. Not simply a mechanism for an air transfer but a metaphor of human desire to soar and to be free. It's the symbol of the soul's flight.
Lacerated by terrestrial circumstances, overburdened by permanent internal struggle in attempt to resist the influence of outworld this white big bird that dreams about sky has to retrieve its wholeness again and again in spite of everything.
Observation window is very important for me in this work – some kind of screen with good observation that allows watching the disaster staying away from it in the same time. This is the edge between inner world and outworld, the indifferent eyes of someone who can relate to the tragedy of another as to the next action no one cares about.
The destruction is not the main thing in this work. It's simply the element of examination, the proof test. The ending is very important – all the characters are moving away dissolved in light: all who destroyed, and that ones who were influenced, all decorations and cutting the silence sound of flying away airplane. But the game continues, and it should continue.
