“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. Each piece explores an aspect of Wal-Mart’s brand of retail, advertising, planned obsolescence and/or product origin. Many multiples of all seven products were made and put on shelves over the course of two and a half years. A half-hour film about Walmart and the project was also produced.”
