Crowding Out
the Gift Horse
2014

21” x 30”

This triptych illustrates social norms colliding with financial exchanges. A project which was commissioned by

Dan Ariely’s Center for Advanced Hindsight, it illustrates the discomfort we feel when money inserts itself into friendship. Thrusting too many gifts on recipients is not welcome, Even the gift horse is inspected! In business, a handshake is preferable to a contract. The horse exits stage right, ignored and unnecessary in the business world.
