Pinpointing specific moments in history that have shaped the America we now call home.
Brand: Unidentified Corporation
By: Dalton Oium
Unidentified Corporation is back with all new range of hoodies, t-shirts, and shorts.
Reflecting on pivotal moments that shaped an entire generation of youth, this collection includes references to LimeWire and 9/11—both of which occurred in the early 2000’s and sparked the start of a new era.
LimeWire, released on May 3rd, 2000, was a peer-to-peer file sharing service that introduced millions of people to the world of torrents. Although it was shut down in 2010, LimeWire taught an entire generation how to illegally download music, movies, software, and more. Thankfully, with the help of brands like Unidentified Corporation, LimeWire continues to leave behind a legacy that will never be forgotten.
Another event that changed the course of history was the attack on the World Trade Centers in 2001, which not only led to war, but also caused the American public to massively distrust the US government. Since 9/11 there have been countless documentaries that have drawn connections to the US governments involvement in 9/11; however, none have done so as clearly as Loose Change by Dylan Avery.
In one part of the film, Avery speaks on the release of a US Department of Justice manual titled ‘Managing Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents’. The cover of this manual not only depicts a target aimed at the World Trade Centers, it was released an entire year before 9/11. Alongside a t-shirt that houses the cover of this manual, Unidentified Corporation is also releasing a graphic tee of Petrina Ryan-Kleid’s ‘War Games‘ painting, which shows George Bush throwing paper airplanes at two fallen Jenga block towers.
Immortalizing an event that birthed a new America, Unidentified Corporation reminds us all that we are a ‘child of post 9/11’.
