The world is composed of structures and forces intended to contain life around us. A dam is built to obstruct a body of water. A sling holds a baby close to her mother. A cage confines an animal. A vessel stores necessities like food and water. A man attends anger-management to control his temper, and a prisoner is forced to live in a cell; incarcerated. Whether for the effect of safety or punishment; livelihood or capital gain, the objective of keeping something contained is to restrict and limit its freedom of movement.
