Pacific Super
2003-4

Fuji lightjet print, 40" x 30"

 

I 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.
