Nike Air Max Con - Air to the Throne

AIR TO THE THRONE, 2016

Up-cycled Shoe Boxes

96(h) in x 115(w) in x 80(d) in

This assemblage of found Nike boxes explores a life-long brand loyalty. Its scale and the use of a bird figurine indicate friction between consumer longing and the pleasure of possession through purchase. The physicality of its construction is an exercise in aggression and control, the will to explore my own complicity in capitalism.
