I suppose this is a sister piece to Reconnaissance (https://johnmacormacart.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/reconnaissance/).

It was made shortly afterwards and exhibits a similar structure with the large city like shape in the top left connected to its satellites via delicate vein like lines. I have often worked like this, loosely copying pieces that I consider to be moderately interesting and formally balanced. The ‘copied’ piece rarely resembles the original in detail.

The snaking quote, referring to Ā “the problem of making people love their servitude” is from Aldous Huxley.
