Roar!!! Miss Universe (friendly capitalism)
Digital photomontage. Variable dimensions. This work is about the birth of Asian beauty as a universal commodity and the coming of American purchasing power. The images are a portrait of Apasra Hongsakula, the1965 Thai Miss Universe, smiling over the bursting dollars-dam-cartoon panel from the Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge “In only a poor old man." A MK-82 bomber used in South Vietnam dropping erotic bombs of magenta orchids over the cum-gushing silver dollar.
