The original structure of the Penrose-tiling disappears in the black background color of the shapes. A pointing hand is on each shape, which points to a corner of the shape. There are ten possible directions, and the placing of the hands is determined by the hidden structure.

The representation of the infinite pattern was made by citating the wallpaper. The covered room works as a microcosmos. The pointing hand means simply the human presence, There are many possibilities of meanings, maybe I would like some of them, maybe not. But it is not important.

I wanted disguise the artwork-context, that's why is it a wallpaper. The image covers the wall, not hangs on it in frame.
