Compulsions to control nature cause alienation, deaden our sense of wonder about the world, leading us to find escapism in addictive substances and behavior. But even the refuse of such behavior is itself wondrous if actually looked at with clear eyes. This piece also acts as resolution to competing schools of art -- effectively making a work like Jasper Johns' "Ale Cans" at one with abstract expressionist works.
