A human being is a tireless searcher in time and space, and this commonly relates to the impossibility of going back to the past, the desire to travel to the future. The quest is symbolically presented by a construction that anyone can make according to his or her own vision, called the time machine. The museum, in its manner of interpreting the past, and making it possible to travel through time, is a kind of time machine, and hence has become a symbol of it.

The author showed this ad hoc time machine as an uncommon spaceship composed of various items from everyday life, while at the side an alien sits on a chair, investigating something in a museum.
