#235 / I Shop....
Barbara Kruger is responsible for the "I Shop Therefore I Am" poster, illustrated above. An article in the July 15, 2022, edition of The New York Times, an "art review" by Roberta Smith, discusses Kruger's work. The article is titled, "She Has A Way With Words." I commend it to you.
We are, literally, consuming our way into annihilation, or oblivion, sacrificing the integrity and sustainability of the natural environment for what we can buy at the store, or (even more) online.
We could consume a lot less - and that would be good for us, for everyone.
It's nice to be reminded of that, once in a while.
