Sky Is The Limit

“Sky is the limit “ comes as an expression for a situation where there are no limits and anything is possible. It also implies a certain amount of possibility, dreams and ambitions. Somehow one could feel like nothing is standing in a way to success, but unfortunately the symbol of sky has also a different side, in many different traditions, sky has been a symbol for eternity, and the afterlife. 

In this case the billboard, with a sky as its background, bears some traces of dreams and violence. 

On the wall there are three hand written stories expressing  the anxiety, loss, state of being uprooted and will to live through rough times shared by those who have to travel for saving their life¹ written by different people in different milleniums, yet they speak the same language, express the same concerns.

 

Perhaps the dreams always have to be balanced by violence.
