This lovely bit of corporate art in the building lobby greets me every morning. I think my favorite part, which I didn’t notice until I got close enough to take this photo, is the limitless ocean of oil in which the Earth is floating.

Friend Alex‘s prescient observation: “I love the blackened, cinder-of-a-planet that’s being sucked dry. Isn’t that what happened on Cybertron?”

Also, call me crazy but I think the shadow cast on the back wall looks suspiciously like the gates of Mordor.

(I suppose I should note: this thing has nothing to do with the company I work for.)
