Obsessive Consumption


Obsessive Consumption comes from illustrator Kate Bingaman-Burt, a book documenting items she purchased everyday since 2006.

Bingaman-Burt explains her project:
"I draw objects that are rather ordinary: Coke cans, Post-it notes, toilet bowl cleaner-sundry items that a lot of consumers have a shared experience with; items that we interact with, but don't really think about. I love documenting the mundane and, in turn, putting a personal face on something that is mass-produced. I make work about personal consumerism, market economies, guilt, joy, excess, more guilt, gifts, celebration, repetition, and the community of these shared experiences."

You can read a wonderful interview with Bingaman-Burt and Julia Rothman at Rothman's website, Book By Its Cover.
