Six lifebuoys floating on the water at the mercy of the waves…

One ordinary buoy is neighbouring with five other buoys whose shapes are transformed: the signs of the five major religions in the world are integrated in them changing thus their volume and conferring them new symbolics.

Moved by the currents and continuously changing their positions do these buoys which symbolize christianism, islam, judaism, buddhism, hinduism and agnosticism stand each one for an individual lifebuoy providing salvation and at which one can desperately cling to or on the contrary, are they residual signs coming again up to the surface from sunken wrecks and obsolete vessels thrown into the recurrent storm of beliefs and non-beliefs which regularly flood our world?
