This piece was exhibited at the SPRINGBREAK Art Show 2017 in NYC. The work was created by hand stitching and weaving aluminum, fabric and paper with wire and a mesh frame. This is one of the largest pieces of this series and created to be semi-symmetric, the viewer realizing the slight differences from one side to another upon close inspection. It was also one of the first times that the artist allowed more of the original color, bar codes and texts of the aluminum re-purposed beer cans to be more exposed and evident in the finished piece.
This artwork also utalized old business clothing for part of the fabric covered portions, something that was common practice for the artist in her earlier work. The subtle gridded pattern can be seen in the yellowish portions of the artwork where she allowed it to seep through by using transparent paint. Where previously the use of the business clothing was symbolic of wealth and corporate power, here the use of it was symbolic of masculine pattern vs feminine pattern (the paisley pattern dominate in the other fabrics.)
