This piece was made from plywood resistant to moisture. The piece of plywood was painted and
burned in such a way to resemble a city scenery with buildings and road. It wants to show to the
viewers how dark can actually a city be , and how capable it is to trap people inside acting like a cage.
A metal fence is stretched over the plywood to make the city resemble a chicken cage.
This piece was inspired by the common feeling created in the heart of many modern citizens. A feeling of being trapped inside your own city, like the chicken in the cage, the cage you built for yourself when you signed for the job and rent the apartment.
A modern citizen living in the city cage, where the only bright things are the television backroom lightning of the apartments and the barely seen stars.
