“The Dolls” is a project that has been presented in a variety of formats including a live multimedia performance and an expanded cinema presentation. This version focuses on a grid of patterns that are based on the symbols of collapsed empires—from the Faberge eggs of the House of Romanov to the banners and heraldry of Genghis Khan and the Mogul Empire. Distributed amongst these are current logos and graphics of our own multinational corporations. The artwork is intended to induce contemplation on the passage of time and the death of kings.
