Benjamins Bread

What nourishes you? In the 1800s, the nickname for money, “dough,” became popularized since the yeasty staple and financial currency were both everyday necessities. In the 100 plus years that have followed, gluten might have fallen out of favor; however, the ravenous lust for money has never abated. In his latest work, Benjamin's Bread, Daniel Allen Cohen plays with this relationship between money and sustenance. Like a visual portmanteau, Benjamin's Bread hybridizes that which nourishes us: bread—literal fuel—and money—figurative nutrition—encouraging his viewers to question how they have been acculturated to assign value in their own lives.
