A series of toy soldiers whose dimensions have been increased to life size. By bringing these pop art pieces into real-life scale they engage you in your environment. They amplify the concept of violence the small toy soldiers represent, and blur the line between harmless toy and media glorified violence. As these soldiers travel from country to country they further characterize the American military machine.
