THE AMERICAN DREAM
is prime time television, 7/8 Central,
desaturated violence, pixels for promises 

THE AMERICAN DREAM
is BUY THIS NOW! Unpaid loans and mortgage
second to your Robinhood investment with 0% APR financing

THE AMERICAN DREAM
is 15% off your purchase of over $35
free shipping and handling, some assembly required 

THE AMERICAN DREAM
is a husband, wife, and kids — a Thanksgiving recipe
written by your neighborhood Klansman

THE AMERICAN DREAM
is broken glass, bodies splattered
against windshields of foreign cars 

THE AMERICAN DREAM
is mass production, a meat processor — 
a conveyer belt straight to the rich man's pocket

THE AMERICAN DREAM
is freedom of religion, white picket fenced churches
salvation has always been pay-to-play

There’s something really captivating about your work. I just realized that the image is of an American flag and it’s so cool how it’s incorporated as barcodes and other images pieced together, really gives it more than a surface-level meaning. The artworks, combined with the poems in code format, is something really unique and I’ve never seen anything like it!
