Competitive psychology is part of the landscape in New York City, as it is the epicenter of the international business world.
In this video, I transpose this psychological competition into a physical contest among an Asian businessman, an American businessman, and a European businessman.
These three characters are life-size robots, crawling on the ground like corporation "solders" engaged in corporate battle.
In addition to this video, I also present formal photographic portraits of the businessmen, in the style of a corporate annual report, and set the installation in a "corporate environment," with a reception desk, office plants and waiting area complete with black leather chairs and a gray carpet.
