Capitalism Works For Me! True/False

Capitalism Works For Me! True/False

Capitalism Works For Me! True/False is a beautiful interactive art piece by Steve Lambert designed to spark conversation around a difficult subject. It was made after a successful kickstarter campaign and is now touring the country.

From the project description:

Start a conversation about capitalism and friends edge away slowly, and strangers even faster. This is what art is for. This is what art does well. It creates a space where new ideas and perspectives can be explored. A space unlike any other.

Our very own 12″ seven segment displays were used for showing the vote tallies as viewers interact with the piece.

After being first displayed in Cleveland, it is currently on its way to Boston for the 2012 deCordova Biennial which opens January 22. You can check up on its progress and destinations through kickstarter updates or Steve’s site.

  1. This cannot end well; not when most people don’t distinguish between capitalism and its enemy, mercantilism.

    1. Capitalism is the only thing that makes an an evil, Greed, work for the betterment of humanity.

    2. They’re the same thing, only on different scales. Capitalism is the competition for market shares among private companies rather than nations – there is nothing noble there, and the distinguishing characteristics are what class is primarily exploiting the workers. The workers, on the other hand, those who introduce value into an economy, fare no better in either system.
