the walmart project

The Wal-Mart Project: The Centennial Society is a collection of handmade objects in the guise of mass-produced commodities. The products were covertly installed in their relative Wal-Mart departments around western New York and Minnesota in 1999 and 2000. Each piece explores an aspect of Wal-Mart’s brand of retail, advertising, and/or product origin. A half hour 'documentary' was made about the project, Walmart, and it's effects on the town of Hornell, NY. An excerpt of this film called "Mussolini Action Figure" is in the Videos section of this site.
