Since 2014 SusieQ has been perusing the streets near her home, and places she visits to pick up littered items from the streets, sidewalks and alleywaysm such as these aluminum cans. Most of the flattened cans she's picked up have been flattened by days, maybe weeks of traffic, thus the thin layer of paint shows wear, and in some cases the colors are quite faded. SusieQ arranged the original work with these cans as a rainbow, starting with the reds at the bottom up through the purples at the top. "Flat Pop" was digitally manipulated to create this piece.
The tltle for the piece reflects the unconscious littering during a quick afternoon break, after consuming one's refreshment, tossing the can unto the street, perhaps feeling like one's able to take a break from self-responsiblity too.
