When remains of a human body are cremated, the Human Genom-chromosome that contains information unique to the particular human being-is discharged and travels into the air.

Through the window-long and narrow (20 cm X 4m) with the stripe-pattern
comprising from prism and polarizing glass, symbolizing disposition of genes-rainbow-colored beams penetrate and project themselves onto the walls of escalator halls.

The beams shift, constantly throughout the year, according to the change in position between the earth and the sun.
