Made in Motherland

The ubiquitous label Made in China has over the years earned an unenviable reputation of being possibly fake goods, posing a challenge to the world-wide market. This is particularly serious for its neighbor Hong Kong, and especially so in the food industry. In this image, the visual analogy of the barcode as silhouette, as conveyor belt, and as blurry labels on deformed milk jugs were used. Made in Motherland is an installation that comments on the escalating skepticism into fear and paranoia about what our motherland is feeding us.
