After digging through a couple old army footlockers I decided to borrow some of the contents to put together a scene of how an individual suffering from the psychological effects of a war, like Vietnam, may live. The elements represent addiction, anxiety, fear, loneliness, and paranoia which I feel portray how war has the potential to transform an individual—effectively borrowing their true identity until they are able to get the help they may need.

Borrowed Items Include:
1980s Hustler Magazine
1970s Bugle American Underground Newspaper
1930s San Francisco Newspaper
1980s JCPenny Television
Late 1880s Rifle and Ammunition
