This multi-channel moving image installation depicts a world where scale and perspective are distorted by their functions within capitalism: to sell.

Outsize symbols—carousel horse, billboards, jumbo jets, pagodas, skyscrapers, yuan signs, dollar signs, a series of colossal babies—loom and recede as we move through the no-space and no-time of the video.

The immersive installation speaks to how capitalism determines our psychological and spiritual experience across digital and physical worlds.⠀
