Overview Next

AMERICAN PRIMITIVE shows my love-hate feeling towards USA. Some parts

are positive but many parts are quite sceptical especially what’s going on these

days with Iraq war. Mickey figure is definitely a symbol of American icons besides

bluejeans and rock n` roll. The plastic toy weapon depicts how the military industry

takes most part of their government budget in order to create a super hi-tech

military troupe to conquer the world and its terrorism but ironically US troupe

creates another kind of terrorism.
