GOODBYE WEAPONS
‘Goodbye Weapons’ is a project collaborated by Artists Xi Li and Chengtao YiIt is a photo documentation of a speculative toy project, an exploration on a relational aesthetic between weapons, toys and fetishism we have been fascinated by for a long time. The oddly beautiful and obviously sexual robotic toy is essentially a kitbashing with scaled fighter jet model kit parts and posable barbie model legs. A combination of a classic girl toy and a typical boy toy. The fighter jets were modified and coated with a fragile layer of rough color spray and then decorated with military decals. Only rubber bands were used to bond the modified jets with the detached barbie legs.
