This piece subverts the convention that vessels can only contain liquids within the hollowness of the body. The interstitial space of the forms become saturated with the pigment-bearing liquid which in time evaporates leaving only the pigment. The obvious form of containment may be viewed as representing conscious memory, the interstitial containment representing the unconscious. With time particular memories may fade but affect dispositions remain.

The upward movement of the colours is accompanied by the sound of a chromatic scale played on a keyboard.
