This rusted steel sculpture portrays a poetic journey of the spirit. A figure, travel case in hand, contemplates a voyage that while imaginary does not appear to be without effort. The sculpture is one of a series of works through which the artist explores the concept of a journey as a metaphor for the search for meaning in life. 

This artwork was previously located at the entry of the Walk-In Centre at the Canberra Hospital, Woden.
