To design an installation that is as comfortable, quiet, and peaceful as the original Eden Garden, the three artists decided to use the concept by imitating the woman's womb shape. For according to the three artists, the womb is not only the birthplace but is also to be a new initial interpretation of all lines of life. In other words, the womb is believed to be a comfortable, quiet, and peaceful space. In addition, the womb also analogous to a space capable of guaranteeing safety.

The collection of "womb" in this installation is translated into fourteen giant pink organic forms hanging from the ceiling. While inside the "Eden-Like Garden" visitors seem to be invited into a dream that gives clues to the future.

The artists created this experience through audiovisual works projected towards the object of the "womb" object with the philosophical concept and existence of the universe and life after death. These images are the result of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology designed by Weaam El Masry, Mohamed Shoukry, and Ahmed El Shaer.

This is an installation full of surprises. When emitting audiovisuals from the "womb" describing the future, the visitor will be immersed in his dreams and experience unexpected feelings.
