Gold Trash

As of 2014 no nation uses a gold standard as the basis of its monetary system. Gold tash represents the millions of dollars companies pay designers to create a package that will be trademarked and sometimes recognizable by its shape and form for the consumer. These clear plastic containers often have elaborate patterns and designs most consumers do not even notice and just discard after using. I cast the container in plaster and then spray painted the mold gold to give it symbolic value. I created these after I found a piece of thin flat styrofoam in the gutter, picked up and brought it home as I felt sorry for it. I then gold leafed it to give it a better second life.
