Big Money

When you hear the words “stock exchange,” the first things that come to mind are likely business suits, chaos and of course, big money—maybe some sleaziness sprinkled in there too, for good measure. Due to its location in Vancouver’s financial district, these are the key ideas this piece aims to embody with a playful and satirical approach. Cash isn't a play-thing to most but in the world of investment, high stakes and financial risk-taking plays a lead role. Symbolism is used to represent these aforementioned ideas, as well as the concept of seeing green, climbing the corporate ladder and keeping up with the flux and flow of the market.
