Over the last several years, Bidinelli felt humanity becoming isolated, each identity evaluating the world from its own perspective as if stuck in a tin can. "Differences were widening," she noted. "Similarities were being overlooked." However, Bidinelli has placed the viewer in God’s position, seeing as God sees. Looking down at humanity, the viewer notices how similar each individual is. Humanity is unified by their differences more than pulled apart.

"Sense of Oneness [senso di unità] rappresenta l’Essere che ci vede per come siamo e con la Sua prospettiva perfetta siamo liberi di vedere le cose ‘come sono realmente."
