My interpretation<br />Façade Storefront: This could symbolize padlocked exclusivity. <br />The green interior lights hail passing motorists with the illusion of a welcome sign. But upon closer approach one finds the doors sealed closed and there is no one inside to handle purchases. <br />Yet, people continue to gaze upon the green glow (symbolizing money), signage, and products (symbolizing status).<br />Money and prestige are hypnotic.<br />
My interpretation<br />Valentine: The location begs the question: Why do so many people adore consumerism? <br />Desolate setting: Similar to the question “If a tree falls and no one is around does it still make a sound?”<br />I ask “If no one is around to acknowledge social rank are symbols of status still valid?”<br />Vanishing act: Using biodegradable materials may symbolize the natural decay in life; including the decay of inanimate objects. All status symbols and empires eventually become outdated and deteriorate.<br />
My interpretation<br />Removing the bottom: Aside from the obvious reason of deterring and catching potential thieves I noticed a few unintentional meanings as well.<br />Eliminating the product’s foundations may inadvertently and symbolically represent society’s willingness to accept something as real even if it lacks a strong base as support. <br />Also the instillation of security cameras may represent how people of high social status are supporters of BIG BROTHER.<br />Do people in high social rank find it easier to remove people at the bottom ranks of society as a necessary reason to safeguard themselves?<br />
