Recalling the ancestral roots of African migrants and the ritual body-painting of some tribes, Liu Bolin has chosen to paint the word "Future" on the naked torso of each of the participants in the performance, «demonstrating - recalls Liu Bolin - that every person, to achieve better living conditions, is prepared to face any kind of adventure, also the most dangerous, taking a fundamental decision which sometimes results in the risk of losing life itself».
