The American Dream™

November 2016

Austin, Tx

In the midst of America's recent political chaos, The American Dream™ embodies the commodification and exploitation of the "American Dream" ideology and its lineage in the history of this nation. In a deadpan fashion, the "Dream"  is branded and displayed in a retail setting, exemplified through a distorted photocopy-esque flag and a blatantly branded sleep mask. This gross exploitation is both the driving fire of American aspirations, and the devastating lie that may be its very downfall. Regardless, the "Dream" and the emanating turmoil will wriggle onwards.
