Inspiration from artist:

Karavan felt that the whirlpools on the coastline beneath the cemetery the turbulent life of the philosopher. He therefore created a steel tunnel leading down through the steep cliff toward to the sea. On the glass wall at the end of the tunnel, facing the waves below,a text by Walter Benjamin is sand blasted in English, German,Spanish and Catalonian..
