Dollar 009

Dollar 009

0.75 1.50

One day in 2009 I was taking the BTS in Bangkok and at Paragon Station something out of this world caught my eye. I had to get on with my journey but made a point of getting off the train on my way back to have a closer look.

It was a 6 m tall fibreglass sculpture of an alien female shape, sitting on a large round solid stool, staring blankly into space.

The people in the busy Paragon Plaza provided a good sense of scale, this thing was huge!

It was designed by the Thai artist Lolay.

This is the artist description (google translated from Thai):

"Dollar was made A representation of human life on Earth.

Get ready to adapt to the changes.

........ And the possibilities of the world. 
Economic, political, environmental technology ...........

The uncertainty .... Constantly fluctuating"

"Dollar ถูกสร้างขึ้นมา เป็นตัวแทนของมนุษย์ที่ดำรงชีวิตอยู่บนโลก

ที่ต้องตั้งรับ ปรับตัว เตรียมพร้อมกับความเปลี่ยนแปลง

และความเป็นไป........ของโลก 
...........เศรษฐกิจ การเมือง สิ่งแวดล้อม เทคโนโลยี

ที่ไม่มีความแน่นอน ....ผันผวนอยู่ตลอดเวลา"
