I took this pic like a year ago. There is this competition in photography called: resume the world in one pic.
now I didn t have time to try new pics but I remember having this one.
The idea here is that life offers you several windows and opportunities that would merge into your future. each choice equal with pros/cons and a new experience.
So do you think this is sort off gd or meh?

I took a contemporary art class for my general ed. I had to come up with these deep open-ended analyses on the most random shit. Half of the time I'd send a text to my stoner friends and they would give me some ideas. I'll give it my best shot and shoot you some questions that could maybe give you fresh perspective on the idea you are trying to convey.
>It all leads to the same place.. what is to be described at the end of tunnel.. just death? Or could you describe it as as reaching a goal.. content with your state of mind.. pursuit of happiness all that phaggy shit.
>I can depict a little bit of flaws in each and every one of them. Does the sole interpretation of that have sequential order, and if so, is it top in comparison to bottom? Are they differential with sustained outcome?
>Would you differentiate top and bottom in correlation to socioeconomic status and opportunity... and if so, why?
>What do the holes represent? Do they signify a wrong path or do they signify imperfection in every path?
>The outskirt have the most imperfections, could you describe this to be the outcast of society and life?
>Is this a continuous cycle of taking a new path time and time again? If so, from a purely logical standpoint, the most effective route would be to enter a new path from the back after taking your first. Is there any correlation between the two, from a chronological stance?
>Remembering from a class I studied about electricity...
An electrical current will flow through all paths, the greater amount of current is always flowing through the lowest-resistance route. Most of the time when people say "electricity takes the path of least resistance," they're referring to a circumstance where the routes differ a great amount in resistance, maybe I could compare it to a wet hand vs air gap. When one route has a significant difference in resistance, almost all of the current will flow through the other route.
This could make for a decent analogy depending on where your interpretation stands.
Hoping these questions broke down the solidity in your original interpretation and gave you some new ideas. Solidity should be ignored when trying to face projects like these because art is an abstract concept, polar opposite of logical reasoning. But ayyy.. still compared it to electrical currents.

Honestly, when I think about this picture in terms of opportunities/life decisions/etc, I find it pretty depressing.
I mean... Every single track leads into the same chute of light at the end.
So, the picture seems to be saying (to me):
"Look, all this shit about yr own personal identity, and about finding yr place/niche in the world, is really just bullshit -- you're headed toward the same fate in the end, no matter what you do."
Like yeah, srsly... the picture seems to say "None of yr life decisions really matter in the end, because it's all going to turn out the same no matter what you do."
BEFORE I read yr description, I saw the picture and thought of metalwork blocking the air duct leading to/from a prison cell.
... You can escape from the cell, **IF** you figure out how to improvise a tool that will cut through the metalwork, AND **IF** you put in the sheer effort and time to actually cut through it, AND **IF** you can hide yr efforts from the prison guards long enough to not get caught before you escape.
In that sense, it's sort of like the way I look at life. You CAN get out of whatever negative situation you find yrself in -- but, it might require tools that you have to build yrself, AND you might have to keep yr own efforts at self-improvement secret from various people.1
