A satirical critique on social hierarchy
Corporate hierarchy extends itself outside of the realms of individual companies
Outside of office parks
Outside of board meetings with sleep inducing designer chairs
It exists in fields, in sweatshops, across highways full of truckers
It exists in the use of free labor by the prison industrial complex
It exists in areas of life that are often invisible
Outside of how a company brands itself
Permeating all roles of society, there exists a subdivision of three ideas in which all facets of work pay homage to
Represented as parts to a whole, each division, each object holds allegorical significance by means of office tropes.
A percentage of a pie chart
A bar graph breaking the atmosphere
A waterfall of abundance, trickling down
Simultaneously dividing a stratified society
And filling up the Water Cooler
In the future, this hierarchy will be highly visible.
Each layer of injustice directly juxtaposing the next.
With visibility comes action, with action comes change.
