A black-and-white photo of a late 19th century French prison; prisoners crowd against the bars in the background while a guard stands in front of the cell, holding a rifle with a fixed bayonet. The guard's has been tinted purple and head has been replaced with the glaring eye of HAL 9000 from Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey.' A mountain of jumbled, bundled US$100s crowd the bottom of the image. An ATM is superimposed on the bars.
