I didn't really plan it this way--or plan it at all; it's what happened--but it could be seen as a comment on the contrived "specialness" of objects set aside for us to look at in galleries, and how the world outside can be just as interesting--especially when perception is heightened by the kind of concentration looking at art requires. Isn't that the ultimate purpose of art after all?To make us more aware of our world?
