No.2 - GREAT WALL
28 x 23 x 9in
Fantasy series (in progress)
Based on the sentence "make something you can't/impossible",
The Fantasy series constructs a nonexistent absurd reality in the form of models etc. with fiction-like background and character settings.
In a way, the text of each piece is more important than the models actually.
“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.”
Coke is a symbol of American culture, a symbol of freedom and equality. Mexican coke can enter the United States, but the people who make it are blocked by a border wall. It's ironic.
