The idea behind this composition was the putting together of my new son's crib and the mystery of the instructions and their vagueness. It is believed that originally the directions were in a Slavic language and then terribly translated to English. I also wanted a surreal floating-likeness of the boy in the upper part of the composition to allude to that repetition of the mystery. The composition in the formal color piece is hard to read but is simplified at its reduced state that you, the viewer has in your possession. Enjoy.
