Rising Sun Jean / Kimono Skirt

American Cloning


In order to express American penetration into Japanese culture, I have intentionally mixed jeans and kimono (technically obi). Together they create a Japanese naval flag of the rising sun.


All the Japanese phrases were taken from the diaries of Kamikaze pilots before their flights to death. At the center of the rising sun I have intentionally positioned the great seal of the United States to illustrate its dominance over Japan.
