I believe the intent was to depict a chemotherapy infusion. I have had mixed feelings about it. A year and a half ago my wife was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She was entered into a clinical trial to receive experimental chemo drugs. On her days of treatment I sat by her side and as she drifted off to sleep would stare intently at this maniacal dripping cylinder contraption. The drips had a rhythmic flow that played in concert with the pump. It was all evil to me - the room, the needles, the smells, the sound of poisonous toxins being pushed into her body to fight the cancer. But, after 12 cycles of treatment she was declared cancer-free and is doing well. This image by 'swbf2cheater' brings back a lot of emotion for me, of both pain and hope. I hate it and love it at the same time. Having such a profound effect on me, I would have to give this entry the nod. My wife is alive today, everything else is just gravy.
I feel your pain, I experienced similar things on my own. My heart actually sank when I read your post, my experiences were similar. The intent was to inspire recycling audio parts and would could be done, whats more inspiring than saving a life with something recycled?
