A photo-narrative journey, collaging symbolic representations of America as seen through pop culture and mass media. Symbols include the flag, the urban, the circus, the automobile, the mall, the suburban, Hollywood, and the Great American West. Symbol Nation functions as a photo essay, a subjective narrative taking the viewer on a surreal journey across the country and through our nation’s past. Printed on newsprint to give a vintage look and feel. Text derived from excerpts of American historical documents, Baudrillard’s America, and random collection of poetry based on the symbols portrayed. Featured in a RISD Museum exhibit, 2010.
