“Debt and Death” is a fiber sculpture piece titled after the Debt and Death silver coin, a mintage in a series called “Silver Bullet Silver Shield” coins. These coins are designed to encourage individuals to take a stand against the US currency and to align themselves with real wealth. Just like with the coins, my piece serves as a forewarning for complacent individuals to take heed of their actions and interactions with one another and their environment, before they too become too entangled.
These are photographs from the original set up. I altered these strands out for a more neutral color palette that better suited the iconography of the individual among the whole.
Final palette color selection with miniature nooses hanging over fishing line. Eventually these ends will be collected together and tied onto a weighted wall to symbolize a ball and chain.
