With the Shift series Giesbers celebrates positive influencers to his life. Not particularly positive, during the COVID-19 lockdown of nursing homes Giesbers' god- and grandfather was ill and visiting not allowed. To support his godfather in distance he played Johan Strauss over and over while working on this artwork, being one of the composers his grandfather loves. Giesbers' says the frustration is visible in the work.
