Often, when encountered with a view that contains man-made elements or is entirely artificial, I am bewildered by the grotesque and surreal aspect of the human touch. In his poem, ‘Et in Arcadio Ego’, W. H. Auden wrote:

Could I manage not to see
How the autobahn
Thwarts the landscape
In godless Roman arrogance…”
