Pt. 01 // Made in America
When thinking about the concept of Intangible Object, I thought about object rights. Objects carry rights in a way that transcends the concept of “me.” They carry a narrative of truths recognized or not. When objects change hands, does their narrative get overwritten, or rather, become part of its history?
My response is simple. I chose to inherit the new American subcultural capital and decided to shoot at the issued blank panel. I made the deliberate decision to choose a human silhouette with the words “Made in America” proudly printed up-front. The human profile is universally recognizable, as well as the perforations from the cartridges. -Michael
