All the Hot Wheels® My Son Has

My interest in corporate branding led to All the Hot Wheels® My Son Has, seventy-two drawings of Hot Wheels® toy cars installed in a 10’ X 10’ grid pattern on the wall. In front of the wall of drawn cars, was a Hot Wheels® Carrying Case with 72 corresponding Hot Wheels® cars. The Hot Wheels® installation is on one hand a celebration of a passion for collecting and on the other a cultural critique of the impulse. Locating this adolescent passion within the museum/gallery, a pantheon to collecting, permits a larger analysis of cultural consumption and meaning.
