A strange object hovers over the surface of the pond. It consists of intertwined colored ribbons. The position of the object above the water and its shape refer to a fishing net, more precisely the fish trap (German: Reuse), which is not functional in this case. The net as such can have many meanings: on the one hand it can be used for rescue, on the other hand it can also mean death.

Klara Paterok's work could refer to plastic waste from fishing nets floating in the seas and oceans of the world. Once they are no longer used, the nets remain in the wild and threaten the marine organisms that die as a result. However, an art work made out of network can also symbolize salvation: the hope of changing the relationship of man to nature on the basis of support and respect.
