Exhibition presents a little model of the universe, which is so varied and multifaceted, but it's also has the balance and after the dark, there always comes the light. "Birth of this light" takes place every day and this is a symbol of hope. Each artwork presents the day which came after this light, and they all are different from each other, like every day they also have their own stories with their multifaceted approach and a glimmer of light, reflecting the spirit in a way of life.
