It is important to say something with the work (otherwise, why do it?).  There are various themes that have been running through my head.  I hope by putting them into written form I can gain a little more perspective. 

Effect/impact that man and man-made structure has on the natural environment; also, the natural environments effect on man and man-made structure.

Placement- where we locate and why.  What effect does location have? 

Processes- natural processes, patterns, cycles, forces, etc.; man-made processes, patterns, cycles, forces, etc.

Values- generational values; why do we want?  What do we want?  Is what we want something that we need?  Does it make us better people?  Or, does it make us better than other people?

"To distinguish between the beautiful and the sublime... To distinguish between moral beauty and material beauty and to inquire what kind of beauty is proper to each of the various arts.  These are some interesting points we might take up."
James Joyce
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
