Cady Noland works three-dimensionally and spatially with ready-made objects and photos from the mass media. Her works include the "ideals and symbols of the American Dream" including the US flag, basketball baskets, car tires and neon advertising signs are placed with "control mechanisms" such as flags and portraits of politicians, but also barriers, bars, chains, handcuffs, pistols and instruments of torture.

The artist explains, "I'm interested in the difference and similarities between blank identity and iconography as well as anonymity and fame."
