Yok and Sheryo are New York-based artists who created "Get the Money," a large porcelain shrine that's a comment on avarice in Singapore and around the globe. Note: strobe effects in the first 10 seconds of the video.
"Get the Money" a shrine you can worship in hopes of prosperity, also a commentary about society's greed and delusional thoughts about accumulating wealth without hard work.
Audiences are told to look for a non-existent lottery number hidden in this prosperity shrine, the greedy really go looking for it 😂🤣🙊 An "antidote for greed" is also present within the sculpture.
