CONSUMER POSTER PROJECT 2014-19

Consume examines the influence of consumer culture on the visual landscape. I bought advertising space and filled it with posters in which images and text are combined using tropes from advertising, however, rather than impel the audience to buy something these posters aim to encourage people to think about the contradictions of capitalist consumption. The poster campaigns have been supported by the Arts Council of Wales (Cardiff, 2014-5), City Centre Posters (London, 2016), the Lipman-Milliband Trust (Leeds, 2018-9) and Leeds Arts University (Leeds, 2019).
