Gold Bar comemorates the exemption of chocolate items from the sugar tax. The piece serves to boost conversation surrounding corporate and legislative responsibility versus individual responsibility pertaining to diet and healthcare within the context of capitalist society, where access to healthy ingredients, food preparation time and land for cultivation are not equal to everybody.

Gold Bar is part of the Fool's Gold series. The Fool's Gold treasures see the transformation of everyday objects under the imagined lens of a 21st century midas touch. The work investigates conventionally 'valuable' materials and their characteristics in order to examine how the functionality and use value of contemporary objects might be comprimised through the dystopian pursuit for 'luxury'. Each item transformed holds particular significance in representing lived socio-economic narrative.
