A collage of personal and public accounts, The Image Remains the Same contemplates water as an allegory of journeys filled with desire, belonging, hope, and demise stretching from the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles to the Mediterranean Sea, specifically the El-Mina port of Tripoli, where Ali El-Darsa speaks to locals about emigration from the shores of Tripoli to Europe.

The installation extends from a former exhibition titled The Color Remains the Same, which included two video installations, an architectural assembly and a text-based work under the same title. The Image Remains the Same picks up where the text concluded.
