This piece is meant to play with the ideas of currency, the power of the mind and the place that black people hold in United States history. American history represented by the paper we trade is an exclusionary tactic. The Benjamin displayed here is clearly not Benjamin Franklin, he is Benjamin Banneker. With this piece I hope to encourage everyone to abandon some of the importance of the other Benjamin and trade in for the currency of thought and history that black people represent. Only when we chase intellectual excellence will money begin to chase you--creating something more powerful. Although I’d like most of the interpretation to come from the viewer’s perspective, I will say that the gloss of the tacks and the bill are meant to clash with the grit of the history of America.
