A more abstract composition than a typical Fazzino rendering, “Mind Your Money…” is a social commentary about how ever-changing technology permeates our financial lives.
“In a Way,” says Fazzino, “this piece is a metaphor for my own life. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by how fast things are happening….but even more so, how fast things can get so messed up. You used to have to talk to people on the phone or see them in person to complete complex financial transactions. Now you can make a mistake by just pushing a button and suddenly, your entire life savings is gone. Or your identity is stolen. Or your bank account is compromised. It’s so easy for things to slip away and you have to be so diligent about staying up on the new technologies.
“We used to be able to manage our lives by using our brains. Now our brains are essentially plugged into all this technology and pretty soon, all you’ll have to do is have a thought and things will just happen…and they will be so far beyond our control before we can do anything about them. The days of the old trading floor with mobs of guys yelling are over and done. Now it’s all about the computers and who can create faster circuits and better buttons to push. It’s more important to be plugged in than tuned in!”
