From Idea to Impact

Having graduated from a reputable business school, I am confident about my understanding of business lexicons, and the meanings behind them. Though observations, researches, studies of commerce and consumerism, I am troubled by business practices that encourage consumption and generate demand for the sole purpose of maximizing profit. I am also compelled by how business schools presented themselves as business organizations. Utilizing photography, I address the power structure of profit-driven enterprises, as well as the educational-industrial complex that normalize and aestheticize perverse conceptions and practices. My works seek authority in a business decisions that engraves in their slogans, adornments, structures, as well as nuances transmitted within interactions of business transactions. My works comment on Capitalism and power, and also open a dialogue in social issues and means of communication.
