This image is strongly-reminiscent of the most powerful line of reasoning in the pilot episode of Boomtown (2002);
The great rivers of our world gave birth to its great cities, the Nile, the Seine, the Danube...
Here, all we've got is a drainage ditch. It'll have to do.
The speaker, Mr. La Fontaine, then empties the urn containing the ashes of his grandson into the L.A. "River".

I suspect the vertical elements in your images mean to join the viewers' imaginations to the infinite,
while the horizontals tend to bar us from engagement with ideas beyond the purely visual.
Like the dual nature of "media", what lies between us (fences, walls and [legal] barriers) both unites and separates participants
in search of vastly better balance. What we've got isn't adequate, but it'll have to do.
