The work consists of three individual elements in the form of the letters S, O, and S, shaped from welded sheet metal and filled with metal and wood scraps and fragments of equipment collected from the Gdańsk Shipyard.

This work is a repository of material remnants of the shipyard’s heritage, a material document of protest and social mobilization, expressed with the use of seemingly redundant remainders of a declining workplace. While it was created as a monument-sculpture, the piece also serves as an object for community activities, an example of which was rolling it around the buildings in the degraded post-industrial areas.
