COMMUNITY VOICE:
Las Americas

A Multimedia Artwork

 

Western influence is undeniable. The dollar rules even the remotest villages in the Guatemalan mountains. In Las Americas, artist Irene Marx mixes photography and digital art to depict a little Guatamalan girl drinking coke--perhaps the most globally recognized companies in the world. Behind her, the Guatamalan qutzal is crossed out, with a conspicuous red arrow pointing to the American dollar instead, showing that even from a young age, this young girl will be living and partaking in a globalized economy where western profits reign supreme.
