Alienation to Actualisation

I was thinking about how to visually represent alienation, and it’s opposite, self actualisation.  I first came across the concept of alienation in Robert Blauner’s book Alienation and Freedom based on his study of workers at the Ford factory. I first came across the concept of Self Actualisation in Abraham Maslow’s work on human motivation. This painting is subtitled from Blauner to Maslow.
