The intention of this piece is to represent capitalism in one of its most familiar environments.
New York is one of the most glamorous ostentatious, dynamic cities in the world. Trillions of dollars are traded on the stock market every day. Property in New York appears to be escalating in value every year. What better way than art to represent the vibrancy of this great city.
This piece of art is produced at great personal cost. This is represented by the toll of walking the equivalent of 3 marathons. I walked from dawn to dusk for 10 days (including me time days), having limited breaks, unlimited Starbucks; and the occasional foray into a conveniently located deli.
Time was of the essence, memory cards for the camera became a scarce resource, with over 1,500 photographs taken in order to select the final 40 images which were redrawn for the piece.
