Corporation is a series of 50 original mixed media works that features Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen as the subject of an immersive and familiar game exhibit where players draw cards and take pieces from her.

Corporation expresses Chairman Yellen’s daunting task of balancing economic equilibrium and all of its inherent implications in the pursuit of economic freedom for corporations and consumers in a hilariously expressed, highly provocative parody of the cost of living confined within a traditional and familiar board game.

As chief of the largest, most powerful monetary institution on earth, Chairman Yellen faces pressure from Consumers, Congress, the White House, the banking industry and the corporatocracy.

As players draw “credit” and “debit” cards to take pieces of her, she is rewarded with beauty and an opportunity for pleasure.

The “Debit Cards” and “Credit Cards” are a series of twenty-four 24” x 42” canvas renderings expressed in controversial fashion from two perspectives; the establishment on the left, representing a system governed by the Federal Reserve; and the prospect on the right of a new constitution; an alternative monetary system visually expressed through the Blockchain and Bitcoin.

Each Credit and Debit Card renders an image of the corresponding twelve sculptures that represent elements of the cost of living as well as controversial public and social issues. Players have the chance at freedom from economic enslavement by successfully removing one of the twelve 8”-10″ polished aluminum sculptures from Chairman Yellen’s body on the 8’ x 4’ mixed media game board.

Touching the metal sides of the cavity containing the sculptures with the 24” tweezers play’s a unique sound and lights up Chairman Yellen in a provocative manner.

 

Each of the twelve polished aluminum sculptures within the game board represent the largest elements of the cost of living as well as some of the most controversial social and political issues. Each sculpture is also replicated in polished bronze, mounted separately on black marble.

 

Corporation renders a provocative and hilarious immersive expression of socioeconomic and political issues and provides players opportunity for reclamation and freedom from economic enslavement, as Chairman Yellen and her Federal Reserve Board of Governors attempt to balance the largest economy in the world.
