Description: 

Here, Elvis represents the exuberant American of the 1950’s. Bolstered by his World War II victory, he is the youthful and innocent herald of a nation new in its power. But secret cabals slowly squeezed him in their invisible grip, drugged him with television, fed him sterile food; scrambled his mind, and raped the very environment (represented by the female torso) that nourished him from the beginning of time. The system he saved mangled him into a consumerist cartoon. The cabal—this fear-based patriarchal energy—spread worldwide, pillaging peoples, heisting their natural resources, amassing windfalls, fueling arrogance, power, greed, and abuse.Here, Elvis represents the exuberant American of the 1950’s.

“3082 (9)” is a special classification of toxic waste. The “3082” series  nods to a perverse patriarchal assault on Nature (which is, of course, the matriarchal or feminine lifeforce emblemized by the female torso), that currently threatens our eco-social systems worldwide. This due to the inherent flaw in capitalism which is its need to grow in order to remain healthy. No system will grow indefinitely within a limited ecosphere. Ours has become morbidly obese, collapsing upon itself to be swallowed by its own, rotting, diabetic body. Yet from that, new life shall spring.
