downloaded an image of Stonehenge from the internet and used it
as a template to go shopping at Pacific Super, a chain of Asian
supermarkets in Daly City, California, a predominantly diasporic Asian-American immigrant city.
I chose products based on how their
shape and size would “fit” into my own recreation
of Stonehenge. The resulting model is made of mainly inexpensive food products imported from
China, Japan, the Philippines, and Thailand. “Pacific Super”
addresses issues of global production, consumption and cross-cultural
translation, using the familiar image of a world-famous "mystical”
European landmark interpreted in everyday Asian imported goods.
