Unicorn and Angels
Silkscreen print on paper, acrylic, mica, metal alloy and testosterone, financial data.
This artwork references the quasi-mythical language of the disruptive business models around ‘unicorn’ companies. This is an area where the imperative of hyper-fast growth at all costs is ever present. Printed
on each side of the sculpture is the abstracted database containing the valuation of unicorn companies for the period 2009-2020 as well as the capital pumped in by so-called ‘angel’ investors.
Following the flow of capital, the composition gets increasingly busier towards one side of the artwork, reflecting the exceptional growth of the unicorn population.
