I took this picture a few years ago. It seems to embody American building. We have the traditional pitched roof structure (the "housey-house," or "Standard American Dwelling"), and it is tied to a source of electricity. The building is windowless, shutting out the natural world - and it is not just the point of view of the camera.

It is also of note that we call electricity a source of "power." Indeed, energy companies control much more power than the ability to do work.
