With “Climb” I was hoping to illustrate the viscous nature of human avarice that has scared our society. People ascending one-another toward an unknown goal, always on the backs of others. Some climb simply to escape the weight crushing down above them. “Layers of Confusion” is an attempt to express the way in which insurance companies obscure the true cost of medical services by burying their own expenses under layers of impenetrable paperwork. This allows them to raise the price of their coverage plans. The sick consumer, desperate and perplexed, will accept the said costs and pay an abhorrent price. Due to this falsification, many middle and lower class citizens will avoid preventive help altogether.
