Power Corruption & Lies.

'You lofty and dazzling towers,pinnacled,

red as roses, burnish’d with gold!

Towers of fables immortal, fashion’d from mortal dreams!'

Walt Whitman.


Whitman saw a future where science and engineering were all part of a 'Divine' plan. Electricity would form the base for what has become our Hi-Tech Society. One may look upon these 'Power Structures' as evil giants, darkening our horizons and spoiling our grand vistas. But they, within themselves are marvels. Seen somewhat corrupted through distorted glass, one can start to appreciate their structural grandeur, beneath which the beauty lies.
