The Corporation (2017)

Based on my experience working at a successful startup from 2009-2015, this series explored the culture and aesthetics of the corporate world in a wide-ranging exhibition with over 120 works of video, photography, sound art, text-based works, posters, sculptures, interactive pieces, and paintings. A limited-edition 64-page book includes photographs taken in offices and warehouses, corporate haiku written during long meetings, spam email promotions, digital collages, office humor, and more.

The book and exhibition highlight a number of current themes in American life: corporatism, neo-liberalism, greed, boredom, chaos, futility, plastic, cardboard, dysfunctional hierarchies, and the color beige.
