Packard Jennings

Packard Jennings amuses me. He has collaborated with Steve Lambert and his work was also included in the Shopdropping exhibition from the previous post. 

Here’s some pages from a “Welcome to Geneva” pamphlet produced to put in random public locations in Geneva, Switzerland:

Packard manufactured a Mussolini Action Figure, which he shopdropped at Wal-Mart, and then successfully purchased. Since the bar code didn’t work, the cashier had to manually enter “Mussolini” and a price of $5.00 to sell it to him.  
He does a similar shopdrop and purchase of an Anarchist Action Figure at Target, and there’s some really great video of the manager struggling to figure out how to handle the toy.
