My chair is a conversation between Brutus and Caesar. I wanted to more tell the story of Caesar and Brutus’s friendship. Caesar trusted Brutus, but Brutus betrayed Caesar by stabbing him in the back, literally. I also wanted to show how the mob in the play gave Julius and Brutus the power by holding them up.
I wanted my conversation to be between Julius Caesar and Brutus. I made one chair with an open circle as the back because I wanted it to symbolize how Julius trusted Brutus. His back was wide open. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for Brutus’s chair, but I realized that Brutus himself was the same as Julius. A huge part of the play is the parallelism between Brutus and Caesar, and I wanted to portray that through the same chair. I will be adding people underneath the chair to represent the mob mentality in the play, and I do intend to make that a bit different for Brutus and Caesar.

It’s a stack of dollar bills that have been cut by a laser cutter. Each bill is cut individually then stacked up on top of each other.
