Live Free or Die Remix

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Went to a great talk by John Sims recently. He uses a lot of political iconography in his work. Reminded me of a phase I went through in my work years ago, and decided to recharge it for a change. Been thinking a lot about the violence in our own culture, and how quick we are to ignore it and point the finger at others. Imagine walking around a small town in New Hampshire with this on your shirt. Probably get arrested, right? Now imagine the exact same slogan on a shirt with a big iron cross on it. Would probably blend right in!
