They say that the city is the engine or the cradle of civilization. This is an idea that has been around since the ancient times. Some say that technology has now become a serious impediment to the ideals of civilization. This criticism could be noted as having been around before in history. I have decided to use the line in a vertical format to form the figure in the composition. The line traveling up and down reflects my own thinking about the arguments from both sides of the debate. This is a watercolor on paper.
