Jake Carlson, Student Work


Regardless of who you are, your political values or moral beliefs, you have to admit that Donald Trump is using discrimination, power, and fear to make a run for this 2016 election. This project pokes fun at a political candidate to depict a broken America. Before the industrial revolution, silver spoons were signs of extreme wealth and elegance, thus spawning the saying, "Born with a silver spoon in his mouth".  This is the ideology I wanted to evoke with this piece. These are photo transfers on spoons, hung up on divided flag where the stripes are intentionally not matching up. We are at a time when the 1% owns the majority the money in this country. We are experiencing racial acts of terrorism between citizens. I don't believe it is beneficial for a big business mogul, who supports shutting certain races out of our country, should occupy the White House.
