People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society.

Finished my piece for LTD Gallery’s Press Start III: Turbo Edition art show at the very last minute!  I had this idea some six odd years ago (good lord) and it seemed like as good an opportunity as any to execute on it for the show.  Possibly spoilery for Bioshock?  Buuuut also possibly way too obscure to spoil anyone.

I’ll be at the opening tonight up on the hill- hope to see some of you guys there! :D
