Investment Bank Flowerpots are models of the corporate head quarter buildings operated by twenty of the world's largest investment banks. Each model serves as flower pots for hallucinogenic plants. The largest twenty banks include GoldmanSachs, Deutsche Bank, CitiGroup and JPMorgan Chase. The plants growing from the models are peyote and san pedro cacti containing mescaline as well as marijuana plants.
Investment Bank Flowerpots exists in two different scales and materials: a 3d printed smaller version in PLA plastic and a larger version cast in concrete. Both versions in a white finish.
The combination of bank and plant forms the title of each work, for example, Investment Bank Flowerpots/ Deutsche Bank Marijuana.
