“Totem-like carved baseball bats, huge animal skeletons made of plastic chairs, masks made of Nike Art Jordan shoes and human hair… these are some of the creations of Canadian artist Brian Jungen, who draws on his First Nations heritage to create extraordinary sculptures and installations. …this chronicle of his oeuvre speaks for itself.”

"In its own way, it increases our understanding of the B.C. artist's remarkable cross-cultural career where traditional First nations' imagery meets Nike's Air Jordan sneakers." "Brian Jungen is readable right from Augaitis's introduction." "The book ends with a page-turning clutch of images that conveys the buzz now surrounding his career." "...you're left with a sense of the man and his art -- arguably the next best thing to being there."

"Forget everything you ever knew about pop art... here in Mr. Jungen's work (The Totems of Consumption, The Big Statement Aspirations, The Polished Final Product) all preconceptions about the dismissive quality of conceptual art are erased." "...like a slowly evolving magic eye 3D puzzle, certain artist-specific truths slowly emerge and they're simply wonderful to behold..." "In beautifully crisp photographs and accessible academic text this is an art book that finally 'gets it'."
