Based on the  stories of deported people into the concetration camps during World War II, the book is based on the concept of absence.

People, depicted in everyday moments, leave a trace of their presence that becomes an absence once it has been dug into the paper. Thus every shadow is transformed into a void that is both a mirror and a container for all other absences. The choice to use laser cutting and therefore to burn the paper is a reference to the burning of books on one side and the crematoria on the other.
