The contemporary landscape in most all of its forms is bound to include a certain human presence. Evident of a human presence in the proposed mural takes form as industrial machines and subtle references to technological development. These selected technologies illustrate the human struggle to manipulate and control their surroundings.
The valve system illustrated as a common water faucet makes a metaphoric leap into the idea of choice. The valve is open and implies that it was turned on by someone. The intention is to suggest the question of why?
Artists: Daniel J. Kirk and Ivan Ostapenko
