This is a contrasting of two states-- the sad and mundane visual and the adventurous: home and the lure of a road trip. The foreground couch looks like our family couch. The side I sit on (its right) is gnarled and blasted out and dark. This is where I do my day job work. The side of the couch where my daughter sits is to the left and more central. The sculpture element for that is the road: clearer, cleaner and going somewhere.
