work made in response to the brief title; Embracing the underdog.

 

In the organic yet manufactured quality of the single use wooden chopstick, used by thousands of individuals everyday, society has been represented as a group en mass. At first glance we are the same, subtle differences hidden until closer scrutiny. 

Physical differences are easy to observe but we are also a product of our health and wealth; here portrayed through the use of gold acupuncture needles intrinsic to Chinese medicine. This diminutive sculpture coalesces broad human factors into a delicate observation of the individual.

Health and Wealth and class are crucial to our standing with in the mass: some of us are elevated and some of us remain the underdog.
