Collaboration with artist Jenny McDonell

Jenny McDonell is a Vancouver artist that often enjoys turning her political views into tangible statements. This, the one and only gas station in the Town Without Pity profits directly from blood loss. You gas up and to pay, you line up around back and come in the front of the recruitment office. Once inside you are fitted for a casket and sent upstairs into combat. Where the automotive service counter should be there's the HALIBURTON crest (an authentic Haliburton crest, actually), and a bunch of trash bins filled with the folded flags mothers and wives are presented with when they lose a child or a husband. My first sculpture for Jim was the Diahatsu project. I made a HUMMER dismantle service truck. Look what happened to Hummer. Art works! :)
