The World of Wealth and Work featuring the Red & Grey

As the impresario of my fabricated pageant, I use a variety of media (paper sculpture, wire, paint, video and prints) for my installation exploring the absurdity of our current social climate. The work is a mash-up of time periods, theatrically posing two factions of human existence.
The Reds, placed in the stylish 18th century, have all the money, the best stuff and seemingly steer events. The larger Greys faction, living in a dystopian setting are the doers, they have work but little else. So who’s on top? Revolutions echo down the years, philosophers extol the dignity of work, everybody wants riches and leisure. How do we cope?
