2007. Epoxy resin, one thousand Canadian dollar coins. 9.5” x 9.5” x 9.5“

One-thousand dollar coins encased in a cube of transparent blood-red resin interrogating arts’ ties to commodity culture, the market system, and the fetishization of money and object. An attempt to figuratively and literally ‘overpower’ money, that which too often overpowers our daily lives and creative pursuits.

For four years after its creation, ‘K’ fulfilled its function; the work remained intact as its existence was more valuable than its contents. However, in 2011 the sculpture was destroyed to partially fund an artistic residency in Iceland. The act was digitally recorded creating a new work.

Despite seeming like money had won, new life was created through destruction. From the rubble a new work arose, possibly more ‘valuable’ than the original.
