Punch out of your full-time job for the day and cast your ballot in this cheeky public poll installation from American artist Steve Lambert. Having previously taken over public spaces across the United States and Europe — including a stint in New York City's Times Square — Capitalism Works for Me! True/False asks visitors to mull the pros and cons of capitalism and then answer a simple question.

The installation will be set up at four public places over the duration of Melbourne Fringe. A live running tally will be displayed on Lambert's large LED scoreboard, tracking how we all feel about the system that runs...well, pretty much every aspect of our lives.

CAPITALISM WORKS FOR ME! TRUE/FALSE LOCATIONS

State Library of Victoria Forecourt — 1–5pm, September 13–15
Queen Victoria Market — 5–9pm, September 19 (at the Hawker 88 Night Market)
Bourke Street Mall — 11am–3pm, September 20–22
Fringe Hub at Arts House — 4–8pm, September 27–29
