Treasure in a storm \ Chocopie

2013 polyethylene resin, paint, wood dimension variable (wooden box: 71.5 x 36 x H34.7cm)

This treasure chest overflows with resin replicas of Choco Pies, a cake snack popular in Korea. In January 2012, it was reported that up to 2.5 million pies were sent by balloons from South Korea to North Korea for the Lunar New Yearfs gift. However North Koreans soon started to use them to buy rice as their high value more than currency. This work raises the ironical and somewhat humorous question about the gfinancial technology gby the economic power in the present world.
