Consumption is a 5 minute long single channel monochrome video, in which the audience is confronted by the image of a person encased in plastic bags. The video follows the person’s struggles to breathe whilst gradually suffocating underneath the translucent coat of plastic placed upon them.
Fixating on the person’s torment, the video proposes that we are overwhelmed by the excessive amounts of commodities we consume in our daily lives - asking the audience to consider the impact of our lust for consumption.
