The installation references carnival game play and takes advantage of a pre-existing stage at Maryland Art Place to accentuate the unattainability of ‘the prize’. The piece attempts to demonstrate that despite our attempts to ‘play the game’ be it in the world of business, love, financial gain or even art, so many of our actions, working toward our goals, are futile attempts. ‘The game’ merely exists as a stage for those already in positions of power to watch those ‘beneath them’ struggle through a distracting set of actions that will ultimately provide no meaningful reward.
