HIJACKING AMERICANA

HIGH-QUALITY ARCHIVAL DIGITAL PRINT, 19 IN. X 31 IN., 2016

Three aliens toting AK-47s in black garb ride a white whale that has been muzzled. Crude oil is gushing where three machetes have been thrust into the whale. The US national debt total is exposed and a flag stuck into the whales back displays the phrase, American Dream, in Arabic lettering. The wide sand dune scene is overshadowed by a trail of crude oil that becomes a reservoir in the distance.
