I can't figure it out. Some of the symbols mean keep out or stop or have something to do with radiation. Or they remind me of that.

I have the same feeling. Something is burning and yes there's a risk for radiation. Sweden has had more than its share of heated debate over nuclear power and this could be some sort of statement.

I thought so. We, in the United States, had "three mile island" nightmare and now there is more emphasis on coal fired, clean burning, power plants. But it seems hopeless because too many people want to be paid off.

Unfortunately the coal fired clean burning comes with emitting a substantial amount of greenhouse gases so I'm not sure that would be any better.

All of which goes to show the magic of art. Seeing something barely comprehensible in a subway station and sharing an image sparks other thoughts and ideas.

Thanks for visiting, I really enjoy being part of this community.
