From my Liquid Capitalism series, here is 'Cream of Carbon (Skimmed and Offset)'. A subversion of Andy Warhol's Campbell's soup can project begun in 1961. Originally, there were 32 varieties, so Warhol created 32 canvases. It was not intended as a critique on Capitalism, as some in Europe imagined. That is my job!

You can have any flavour, as long as it is processed. In the capitalist doctrine, nature is the natural resource; if carbon is produced in the process, concentrated and creamed off, then so be it. Therefore, as the label says, 'this is not a carbon neutral product'. Far from it.

In a spoof of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations moniker; the motto is: 'Invisible Handmade'; i.e. by machines in the factory, not as often implied, by hand, or with almost any contact with humans.
