A split image of fragments of objects. The central image is comprised of light bulbs that lean towards each other in the center of the image. In doing so, the image becomes abstract. The metal bases of the light bulbs are blue. Behind the bulbs is a striped rectangular form. The top of the rectangular form has a horizontal bar of black with a cream stripe that goes through its center. Below this are purple and cream vertical stripes, which fill up the rectangular form. On the facing-right side of the rectangle, the cream stripes have been overlaid with blue. Below the blubs, located where their meeting point, is the end of a fluorescent bulb, as evidence by its plug. The tube of the bulb contains the color purple along the edge and base of its visual representation.
