The Economy of Emotions
399584–001

Installation is sized, priced and produced on a project-specific basis.

Matthew Brannon slyly employs semiotics as a way to comment on the plight of the individual in mainstream consumer culture. The title of this work is important to its reading, playfully pairing the idea of controllable or measurable emotions with a disorderly lattice of rulers. Each installation of The Economy of Emotions bears the artist's signature in the form of a single uniquely placed praying mantis.
