Forsaken Substructure uses cracked terrain, which represents the unstable foundation my relationship with my father began on, to portray the preclusion of a bond with him. The topographical mapping is a metaphor for the peak moments I had with my father and also references the water that revives the nutrient-lacking, cracked ground. The beginning of our bond and a constructive relationship is symbolized by the girder, which abruptly ends and causes the situation between us to reach a point of complete neglect.
