Raggy Heroes, 2006

An item made to be sold in the context of a war museum shop. A damaged/incomplete puppet that needs to be repaired/assembled by the user. Oppositional to our usual consumerism, it emphasises improvisation, customisation and acceptance of flaws. By buying one of the characters a donation is made to support relieve organisations that are active in operational zones. In opposition to dull mass produced merchandising products such as pens or camouflage rubbers, these items try to include some of the content the visitor has experienced during his visit to the war museum.
