The graphics show the two main characters in the story the artist is working on. The main goal of the artist was to convey the feeling of dissociation and instability of the character below – Ali. At the same time, she wanted to emphasize the importance of the figure on the mountain – Ian – in his life, being the main source of light in the illustration. It should also not be overlooked that it is Ian who pulls Ali out of the water.
Ali, however, does not look at the source of the light, but gets intoxicated with it as he looks at his hands. Thus, it focuses on the positives of the relationship without forcing himself to recognize the real source of the feeling.
This work addresses the problem of relationships and connections that people make between themselves. Everyone has a role to play in such a relationship. The artist shows these roles beautifully and metaphorically, also showing the feelings that accompany being in a relationship.
