In regards to her work, she writes, “have you ever wondered why financial statuses have become the leading label of individuals within society? Finances provide for everyday essentials, yet they separate individuals. However, many similarities can be found between the two groups. The Monopoly game pieces were arranged to represent a narrative of the disparities between individuals of different economic statuses. The top hat represents the wealthy and the sneaker represents the less fortunate. The two dice show challenges each class encounters and the pair of sixes recognize both groups’ shared experiences. My piece conveys that economic statuses are different for all, but don’t define an individual.”
