built ford tough (installation)





so first of all - I'M PISSED OFF -it's so perturbing when I come back to Texas and see countless trucks and SUVs with "my son is in the US army" on the side of their bumper. So I spent all of June building a large video sculpture installation piece for such hypocrites in their gas-guzzlers, only perpetuating our dependence on foreign oil. the words spoken by this dead soldier figure are from Conrad's Heart of Darkness; this is re-edited to see the video as is, and at the end the sculpture in its space.

What did you use for the blood on his face? If you used watered down oil, you're my hero.

PERHAPS ONE SHOULD CONTEMPLATE THE BLUNDERS THAT WE (THE UNITED STATES) GET OURSELVES INTO, AND THEN, PERHAPS, REVERENCE WILL BESTOW UPON US.
If we lack the ability to ponder and understand then how will we ever stop the insanity?
to you and I it is obvious that big truck=lots of oil...but explain that to idiots and well perhaps its just too complex.It is much easier to remain ignorant than to sit--think and establish an understanding and a sense of respect.

This was a brilliant way of expressing the outrageous behavior on the part of some of our fellow citizens. Really nice piece, thank you.

Yes some citizens do not always behave as you would like them to but they have a right to their opinions too, if their voices are quietened them we are no better than a tryanical state that panders to the needs of the few.
