Themes of opposing forces, contrasts, and the unexpected unfold this imagery representing man's involvement with the natural order of the universe. A lonely escalator with its stairs sliding endlessly downward accompanies the sound of mournful music, growing louder as does an earthly rumbling. Suddenly a flood of people empty down the stairs and pour into the street then rush off in all directions, contrasting sharply with the opposing image of a sea bird anxiously cawing admonitions into the wind.
