(Why cant i cry money instead of tears)
Why cant i cry money instead of tears? Because its impossible?
Literally it would be a very practical solution to a lot of my problems.
Emotionally it would be a tangible yield for the day to day challenges I've weathered.
Unfortunately neither of these are options, and we're left with a poignant statement as food for thought.
WCICM is a visual exploration of the emotions that feed the aforementioned question. A literal depiction of the pursuit of money. Artist Brandon Buckson juxtaposes clickbait with an organic approach to Fine Art in order to communicate a perspective on subjects like Currensy, Competions, & political views.
WICIM Is an experience that ties 3 points together. The romanticizing of “The Come Up”, the actual beauty of life and the loneliness, substance abuse and other toxic elements that can go along with poverty. My intention as an artist is to create an experienced that anyone can find commonalities in. The environment is meant to visually be similar to any bedroom in anytown in the world. This sort of default set up is to build a relationship with the audience which allows them to more relate to the story being told within the elements inside the installation.
