That which remains... work picks out single words from the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights such as opinion, privacy, thought, choice, existence, life, liberty, equality, security, protection or movement and rewrites them with the seawater taken from the Aegean Sea.

The seawater that is used in the work is taken from Dikili* and Cesme in Turkey, Lesbos and Chios in Greece.

*Dikili is the town where the migrants were brought back from Greece to Turkey under the EU deal with Turkey.
