BANKED

Banked explores the nature of failure in commerce and currency in light of the worldwide recession. With shipping as integral to global power since ancient times, coins act as emblems of trade and treasure with circular motifs referencing maritime maps, the globe and globalisation. Decay of the man-made in sea, rock and sand reveals our very small place in time and addresses our tenuous, intertwined fate.
