Plutomania- Lavender Child


Lavender Child


noun plu·to·ma·nia \ ˌplüt-ə-ˈmā-nē-ə \
the excessive or abnormal desire for wealth.

This piece tells the story of a person who has valued material possessions and wealth over personal realtionships. As the person nears the end of their life they are confronted with deep loneliness and sorrow. Throughout the song the narrative moves through an emotional process of realization, denial and acceptance.

The video, created by Stephanie Krystyna, features the plutomaniac erotically and ravenously consuming “the fruits of their labors” which are slowly decaying, until they are left with nothing.
