The title of this piece comes from the novel, "Atlas Shrugged." As an octopus creates ink, his imprisonment inside of the ink bottle evokes the feeling that he is trapped inside of and defined by what he produces. This piece speaks to the futility of finding our identity in our occupation and how trapped it can make us.
