Jungle Boots Escalator is a pristinely cool object of mechanical beauty and of intangible horror. The title in the context of the weapon and legos denotes a relationship between unspecified antagonism and computational militaristic strategy. I also think of wars by proxy and guerilla tactics without ties to a particular jungle region or political ideology. The white legos provide poignant formal contrast to the shiny sculpture, as the individual bricks blur into the summation of a solid white column. White bricks suggest stacked commodity; sugar and drugs, or possibly cultural/racial whiteness. There’s nothing didactic in the way of moralizing the juxtaposition of the gun and toys. But their raw capability and familiarity arrests the viewer and demands studied deliberation.
