Spending 2 months in New York I was discovering the City as a tourist. I wanted to buy friends and family sentimental gifts from my travels but was confronted by a monotony of generic and cheaply reproduced items. Using these, I decided to produce a one off object that shows its audience something new everytime they look at it; replicating that feeling of discovery when first visiting a land of adventure.
The statue is made up of different parts taken from over 30 statue of liberty mementoes. Contrasting the over saturated and novelty nature of our ‘Made in China’, yet apparently authentic souvenirs, the result is a one off and original piece; created from un-original, mass produced objects.
