The Reciprocity of Objects and the Psyche
I seek to undermine the belief that broad distinctions can be made between the pathology of the consumer and that of the hoarder. I establish binary relationships between hoarding and consumerism through images and objects relating to consumer culture as well as intervening on combinations of objects that connote frenetic energy. I utilize installation and assemblage as the formal vehicle to posit this equation.
