This carpet is an attempt to visualize how the society is being unified by bureaucrats who are depicted as devils. The patterns remind of swastikas and include the digit 6 which symbolizes the devil. The recurring repetition of segments depicting devils in different colors throughout the entire space of the carpet gives a feeling of the rhythm of the system created by man, which totally embraces all spheres of his life. Mankind created this system itself and put itself within it. A man is his own prison. Prison is a man himself. There is a black rectangle in the middle of the carpet, which symbolizes both an entry and an exit for this system, that is, a person can be on both sides, and has a right to choose where to go.
