The walls to each side of the central wall piece is painted green and pink. Those are the colours that produce the effect of a faux stereoscopic effect in the Phrygian Cap wall piece. Those colours are there for more complicated reasons too. They are part of a system currently in development by the artist. In it each colour is placed within a system that describes the totality of existence from a materialist standpoint on the one hand, and a metaphysical standpoint on the other.

Within the materialist system of organization, green signifies “commodity” and pink signifies “money.”

In the metaphysical system, green stands for “knowledge” and pink stands for “virtuality.”
