America the Gift Shop

Liting asked if I’ll like to attend some events at the upcoming M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2010 with her, so I did a little clicking around on the website [random question: what will we do without websites?].

There are a lot of things going on but I am only truly intrigued by America The Gift Shop, “an installation project that reflects the foreign policy of the Bush/Cheney regime, in the fun-house mirror of American commerce”.

You’ll almost want to laugh, but stop just in time to realise that these items are seriously disturbing.

I do like the t-shirts though. I mean, they are not really supposed to be funny, but we are all getting a very warped sense of humour anyway. Might as well indulge ourselves.

More gift shop items over at the project website.
