MODEL WAR ECONOMY - Failed State

Model War Economy is a gallery installation of intricate miniature models that depict the grim absurdity and economic devastation of Americas’ endless wars. it consists of two table-sized sculptures that present and compare the economies of two miniature nations, one waging war, the other a victim of war. Using tiny replicas of military equipment, architecture, scenery, figures, trains, and vehicles, a peculiar spectacle of global economics and international conflict emerges. The work is 4 x 8 x 2 ft, each image is a detail shot.
