Institution

Scroll to the right

Institution is an archetypical skyscraper, landscaped with brain cacti to boot. Each ink blot has a superimposed image on the reverse side of the glass that alludes to a specific power structure in the United States. Militarism, capitalism, racism, and religion are the big headers. Gay marriage, education, reproductive rights, healthcare, the death penalty and the criminal justice system are all affected by the powerful top players. The images can be cross connected and greed fuels the entire establishment. photo-litho on glass, steel, concrete, succulent 35" x 16" x 16" 1997
