Breakfast Series at SAM

Here is a fun piece from the Pacific Currents installation at the SAM. It is titled: Breakfast Series and was completed in 2006 by Sonny Assu.

The pieces are digital prints wrapped around a fome-cor© box structure and feature cereal boxes that are inspired by Kelloggs/General Mills products, but have a satirical/sarcastic twist on the imagery and theme.

The work is well crafted and convincing. Looking like they belong on the shelves of a local grocery store, they are humorous and have and interesting combination of commercial design mixed with Northwest Salish conventions. Certainly worth checking out.
