The three children play with a transparent ball which represents the world. The plate on which they are standing reflects the contours of the municipality of De Panne. As such, the children find themselves between their youth, their roots, their childhood (school), their neighbourhood (Kasteelwijk), their municipality (De Panne) and the wider world (globe). This creates a field of tension between child and adult.
