weapons americans need: shopping cart prototype

A shopping cart that brings the safety (isolation) of a gated community to the personal experience. A hard fiberglass shell protects the shopper form other Americans. A video camera / video monitor system allows the shopper to see shopping items.

This work is inspired by the fantastic sculptures of the Japanese artist Kenji Yanobe.

I recently 'released' this piece to the wild - it was quickly captured and taken away by children.
