"But where there's equality here, it looks more like deadening sameness. And the overarching picture—of the big house overlooking all the rest—is of inequality"

Wow you should be a god damn detective.

Though I do like this piece, sometimes I have my dog jump over the houses. It is the rare good piece of public art and it makes me glad that i live in Seattle.

It looks like Mudede's vision of housing density. Then, when your life is over, you're sealed inside and it become's your tomb..

I always assumed that piece had to do with Japanese internment camps. Did I just make that up myself?

I always think of Army camps with the officers in the large hut on the hill.

Unfortunately, that lower picture reminds me of a veal farm out in Fall City.

The way I interpret it, is that 'equality' was what planners / decision makers / politicans acting on behalf of the masses had in mind when they opened up the land for urban sprawl.

In our attempts to give everyone their own private castle, we have the grim monotony and isolating tombs of suburbia.
