Artist's Statement

American society glorifies military responsibility and economic prosperity. These two things, in themselves, are perfectly fine ideals until taken to the extreme. As Americans, we should be militarily responsible for ensuring justice in all situations nationwide, and we should pursue economic gain in order to compete with other neighboring countries. What this box emphasises is the over-reliance by American citizens on America's military prowess and economic standing in the world, exemplified by the soldiers entering the battefront, and the penny which the soldiers wish to gain from their venture to the right side of the box.
