An international business competition takes place as three life-size robots of American, European, and Asian businessmen compete against each other in corporate battles. They crawl determinedly, like corporate soldiers.
The artist sees competition, especially business competition, as an essential part of the New York experience. Her three robots and the accompanying video transpose psychological competition to a physical contest among the American, European and Asian businessmen. The three robots are astonishingly lifelike, capturing the pose of businessmen determined to win. In addition to the crawling robots and the video of the corporate battle, the artist presented formal photographic portraits of the businessmen, in the style of a corporate annual report.
