Fences represents the modern life of both rich and poor. We have been shaped to live in protection of barricades. We have been taught to delve in the self, hide behind lines that separate us from others and find comfort in the lies of media. Our minds are recycled like materials with the similarity of colonization, hereby represented by an illustrated colonial fence which was the barricade for most city parks. These are all metaphors of control, and we are clearly living in the times of control by fear and  lies.
