The Pilgrim's Pride

It seems that much of what we take pride in is divorced of beauty. Pragmatism rules our lives. We, captured by the consumerist ethos, are told that this is how life works; you have a job, you make money, gain power, and relax. You worry about yourself. This is a visual narrative of that reality. In the process of using art to illustrate this ominous American pride, I attempted to take my own small step towards denying it.
