This performance is born out of observation the artist has made on how Thais respond to social happenings between 2014 and 2017. Personally, the artist believes that many people in the Thai society wishes to better their society but towards differing directions. Certainly, this is not a problem. Diversity in wants is only natural and socially healthy. However, the artist is interested in asking, what it is that makes it difficult for an individual to adjust themselves to societal changes. What hinders this process? What is it in each of us that prevents us from reaching the point of transition where we can collaborate with the new knowledge?
