AMERICAN DREAMS: A WORK IN PROGRESS


MATERIALS

62 packages , 16" x 11" x 2-5" each, installed on 8 sections of 2' x 4' pegboard.


american dreams is an interactive installation making use of common retail packaging and display aesthetics where gallery participants may self reflectively play the role of consumers while uncovering unsettling relationships between free market globalization and military domination. The installation represents an ongoing meditation on the abuse of power and prevailing mythologies and ideologies of US culture.
