Consumed: The American Way

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Save

This is one photograph out of a series of twelve. I will be showing three of my photographs similar to this one. The images are 13"x19"x2 1/2" and are inkjet prints on matte paper. They are composed on wood box frames with strips of coupon paper pasted to the sides. With this photo, my main goal is to comment on our consumeristic society. Working in a directorial mode, my images engender a sense of ambiguity between the existing spaces and the peculiar subjects placed in a confronting manner, while examining the relationship between the consumer and the product. I am using the environment, ad, and object as a representation of the different aspects that make up our consumer culture. My models are confronting the viewer, allowing one to rethink these commonalities and permitting one to question our tendencies to believe that this is the only way to live, as a consumerist society.
