Sigmar Polke was creating a wide range of surfaces with various materials, as shown in his 1971 artwork of Alice in Wonderland (Figure 1), which is paint printed on a store bought printed fabric, not a canvas. In the front, the audience sees a transparent Alice talking to the smoking caterpillar, who is sitting on the mushroom.
As you read ,  when Alice takes a bite out of the mushroom, she can either grow big or small.
She is the heroine of a fairy tale where she must overcome a number of obstacles and trials before she gets 'the prince' - namely her own resolute I (the knight in armor). We learn that she has been to Wonderland before, although she has forgotten about it.
A central theme of the movie is identity: Who is Alice? But has the teenage years and the influence of environment changed Alice so much that she is no longer the same as when she was a child?
The mixed media art may have been here to tell people, the brain is on drugs when the audience is watching sports.
You notice the translucent characters more, since they appear larger than the soccer players.
This shows that drugs may help the audience for a little bit, but then most of the time, drugs do not help you.
Next to the characters in the painting, there is a translucent soccer player.
The characters being see through indicates they have lost their color; they have lost their soul.
Despite having no color, we can still see them; this could indicate they are about to die and be forgotten.
