SupersizeThese images were originally designed for the Japanese design magazine IDEA, for their special issue, "Made In America", focusing on American design.
Through cultural imperialism, America exports guns and gun violence to the rest of the world in movies and other "entertainment" delivery systems-- America is perceived, especially in Japan, as a very violent place.
Our more pernicious and deadly import, however, is our fast food. The corporations who create markets for beef, dairy and fried food, particularly in cultures who previously relied on sustainable and healthful source of nutrition, shoot straight to the heart. The Japanese word for "Supersize" is "Supersize".
