The project proposes to reflect on cultures that may be seen as historical and forgotten, but as a matter of fact have influence today through design, language and culture. The artist challenges the visitors to decide if it is respectful or disgraceful to sit or not on the faces of the ancestors printed on the folding beach chairs.
