Etchen says the mural "represent[s] Us, You, Me. How so many of our lives have been distilled to one box or another. How individualism is an illusion. How we're parts of a bigger whole. How we've actually become digital heads-in-a-box-The Profile Picture. An avatar on screen. Floating EYES looking at everything."
