For the title of the work I combined the Latin expression Carpe diem and the English word carpet.

My work looks like a small piece of hairy carpet. It is made from plastic clips which show the best before date for food products.
Carpe diem
(an expression from Horace's Odes) has been interpreted as "seize the day; enjoy the moment without thinking of eternal things".
Nowadays, the way how people have used the environment and the natural resources raises a question: is there also a best before date for our life on planet Earth?
