This work effectively conveys the idea in its title through several different factors. First, the contour from left to right, the downward curve decreasing the colored area towards the middle and cutting it off entirely by the right side of the screen. Second, the color gradient from a pale yellow to a somehow weaker- and more desparate-feeling cyan, going hand in hand with, third, the vertical lines towards the center that add tension and anxiety as the area in which they rest gets smaller and smaller. But it's the ripple waves across the whole colored part of the image that really tie it all together as one cohesive whole, and distance it from the darkness outside against which it desparately holds.
