we ignore what has been missing.
this is our cage.
A Cage could mean many things, but primarily it may be, for you, a statement about the world in which we’ve created around ourselves. All of us are tethered (even wirelessly) to the various networks and power grids humming and buzzing over our heads. In all of our haste to do our jobs, accumulate our money, to “progress,” what is it that we’re sacrificing? Are the things that we create in order to make us more free the very things that strip us of our freedom? Enjoy your next power outage.
