Monument, 2014, archival inkjet print, 70 x 50 in

Monument, a 4x6 ft tall, framed giclee print of a column cactus, contemplates the use of plants to create a friendlier atmosphere in the office and present a limited opportunity for workers to add personal touches to their otherwise standardised cubicles and monotonous day-to-day routines. The image employs the commercial style of a stock photograph blown up to an imposing scale to convey the sense of hope as well as the banality and pathos entailed in this effort.
