Beyond the Empire

With the concept of my pyramid changing (possible title Aurum Obelisk) I have opened it up to new possibilities.

One of these is to incorporate a reiteration of Warhol’s Empire into the piece. My idea was to record footage of my mini-pyramid displaying the price of gold, then edit this to closely resemble Warhol’s iconic film (of the iconic monument to capitalism) and to exhibit this by playing it on the iPhone inside my mini-pyramid. A little bit confusing, but I like this idea, not only would it be a bit more challenging, but it also opens up the meaning and symbolism of the concept, hopefully without watering it down.
