Times Square Figures Out If Capitalism’s on Their Side
As an artist, what Steve Lambert hopes to do is start conversations. For him, art is meant to “[create] a space where new ideas and perspectives can be explored.” So, he took a word that often shuts down conversation (or at least leads to conversations that go nowhere, fast), “capitalism,” and tried to create a piece that supports a dialogue on the topic. This video, a collection of people’s responses to the traveling exhibit’s question “Capitalism Works for Me! True/False” is the beginning of that conversation. Seems to me that regular people rarely get this amount of time and space to freely discuss our economic system, so it’s a project I’m very interested in. Check out the artist’s page for it here.
