Artist's Statement

What I wanted to do with this piece of art was to represent something that is more than it seems. When a person regards a standpipe, the person must not think much of it (What is the significance of a standpipe?). But what I did here is I placed mostly eaten popcorn bags inside the standpipe--the last item someone would expect to find in a standpipe. Not only is the standpipe not empty, the popcorn bags are also not empty. I try to represent the limits of the human mind in judging something (or someone) as we first see it.
