Finally, for my art piece that represents the concept of a good life, I've picked Tokyo Street with Pachinko Parlor II by Jacquette Yvonne. At first, this seems like a stark contrast to everything I've said up until now. The scene I picked is a bustling urban center, covered in neon lights and indistinct people going about their night. The theme that I feel that this piece conveys is synergy. The key value found in nature is the ability to become part of it; instead of being an individual that is interacting with nature, become an individual that is a subset of nature as a whole. Similarly the large urban area in the picture is a setting in which individuals are just part of a larger environment. Throwing ourselves into nature isn't a viable option for a daily lifestyle- for most people at least. Instead, being able to become part of your surroundings, both natural and human made, has enough merit to be pointed out. In other words, I think that despite the natural tendency to go through the day worrying about individual concerns that plague everybody, it is important that you take a step back and just look at the world in a broader perspective, one that just leaves you as an insignificant player in a vast complex interconnected world.
