Disarmy Men (2005)

Altered toy soldiers.
(10 x 5 x 1.5 inches)

Three packages of plastic soldiers were bought from a local store and carefully opened. After removing all of the plastic weapons with a mat knife and hacksaw, the soldiers were resealed into the original packaging. Two of the packages were then returned to the store and replaced on the shelves (while the third package was kept as documentation). What is suggested by a bag of weaponless soldiers? Are they still soldiers, or have they become prisoners, or simply people? What will be the reaction of the individual who unknowingly buys this package of weaponless people? Will they return the defective product? What do plastic toy soldiers imply about our society in the first place?
