The broken branches symbolize desires and goals. Unified, they strengthen and reinforce each other; separated, they become broken fragments. The gold bars contain the legend "Make Up Your Mind" while the text covering the glass panel endlessly describes conflicting goals such as "I want to dig in the garden/I want to have clean fingernails, "I want to watch Letterman/I want to get up early" and "I want to act like a child/I want to be treated like an adult".
