These three pieces of paper fell together on my desk and with just a few nudges of my tweezers ended up looking ike this.
“Hammernegger” – the name of which has a racist tinge to it, also has a weird socio-contextual vibe.
Northern California’s native, black entertainer turned entrepreneur MC Hammer and Southern California’s immigrant Austrian bodybuilder turned actor, turned Governor, side-by-side on printed stock with red, blue and thin yellow stripes.
It’s like nothing and everything. It’s racist and not. It represents California and doesn’t. It’s a totally unique object … I have no idea what it is, except to say it doesn’t exist anymore, cause I am using each of these in different pieces.
