The philosophy of this miniaturike work it's about fear and the certain melancholy that comes us when we have to change our customs. It's to say, when you have to decide important ideas for your life and you must close some doors. Precisely that's from where the title comes. Just close them! & Just close it!
In addition, it could be also understood as a critique to our society because we live governed by our customs and traditions. These facts don't allow us to be so much creative due to lots of unconsciously prejudices and nonsense obsessions that are in our minds. They don't enable us to close the doors and often limit our creativity.
