The title of the mural reflects the time when the Westbank building casts a vertical shadow on the site, depicted by the vertical marker in the mural. The work functions as a time capsule sun-dial; an "oblique map" that orients the artwork to the sun at that exact date. In coming years, viewers can check, on the same month and day, how the spot has changed in relation to the sun and surrounding architecture.

The collaboration between the artists is shown through the interactions of the mermaids on the mural, as a symbol of the female cooperation that brought this mural to life.
