Acknowledge This by BenjaminForsell Acknowledge This by BenjaminForsell
I've been sitting on this for quite a while but now that we've wrapped up our course in conceptual art I feel confident to post this.

Finland has always been among the countries with the most positive results in Transparency International's annual Corruption Perception Index and even shared first place with Denmark and New Zealand in 2012. That however, does not mean that corruption doesn't exist here at all, a lot of the corruption that occurs is not necessarily even illegal, companies not having to reveal details about public procurements and the existence of 'good old boy' networks serve as good loopholes. Corruption in Finland, although minimal, is still real and is still a problem. This piece recognizes that.

It is a very good piece of art! I love the shadows and effects.
About corruption, I'd love to say the same you did about your country when I'm talking about mine. Here, corruption is a very common problem that has NEVER disappeared...of course there will always be honest people but it is a minority. You are very lucky man.

Yeah it's an unfortunate obstacle for the state yet to overcome, sadly.
Thanks for your comment!

Regardless of the corruption, these coins are a great piece of art.
