The disappearance and separation of the human being inside. The anonymity in the city. What lies underneath the wreckage? So many people get lost in the concrete. Homelessness and the working class low income residence are to easily ignored, as if the human being is a statue that is camouflaged as a part of Los Angeles’ landscape.
