In today's consumerist society, the narrative ‘consumption is the true way of identifying oneself’ that is propagated by capitalists has led to blurred lines between wants and needs.
The work employs a playful and ironic approach to reveal and critique this phenomenon, advocating for rationality in the face of mass consumption. Drawing inspiration from pop art, which popularised consumerism, Snack Time! explores how individuals are both consumers in the mass market and also consumed by the capital market. This work prompts reflection on needs versus wants and encourages more thoughtful shopping behaviours.
