The Modern Deal
The absurdity of this mixed ephemera in The Modern Deal hints at an unnatural melting together of two worlds. Familiar, manmade materials and natural elements act as a reminder of the impact overconsumption is having on our environment.
These surreal assemblages depict the essence of the modern deal. The deal serves the interests of today’s capitalistic society, at the cost of the world’s ecosystem. Polluted and domesticated – the natural world absorbs the unnatural materials of man. The result is a cocktail of organic and inorganic matter.
