Artist Description

This cast was made of an old wooden printers block. It had lost its original use as technology rapidly shifts and traditional methods are discarded along the way. Through casting it in bronze I wanted to give it back a value of sorts. Hollow promises also examines the $ sign, a modern symbol for materialism and greed which ultimately falls flat with the destructive values of consumerism run amok.
