Bozena Kowalska author of a monograph Roman Opalka, critic and art historian, in his introduction to the catalog recalled, "Opalka decided to create records one of his life as a kind of metaphor for any and all human existence. He argued that the concept of time is inconceivable for him. It is an element of space, movement, which is also the matter. He do not opposed to it did not fight with it. He became familiar with time by emotionless documenting his passing, stoically indifferent observation, as increasing numbers, whitened canvas and photo face losing over the years the color of life, approaching him to death. Also he tamed a final farewell, knowing that it will be joy and pride of the artist, who last unfinished detail of his program closes his life's work."
