Miss Valentine is the symbol of commercialism in love and materialistic love. Inspiration behind is how our societies have turned the celebration of one of the most powerful human emotions into a feast of commercialism, while simultaneously it has become a common place to ‘manage’ who we ‘love’ according to social status.
The piece is a continuation of the USD bill series as a study of how capitalism acts as a prism on fundamental human emotions.
