Themes: consumer culture, burden of owning, drowning in a sea of stuff.
Description: Thirteen cast concrete anchors (bakers dozen) embedded with a diversity of misc everyday objects were installed in a formation. Neon text spelling out the word ‘DROWNING’ was mounted at the top of surrounding walls to create an all encompassing and visually immersive underwater atmosphere. The neon color of letters ‘DR’ were a different tone from the letters ‘'OWNING’. This artwork was exhibited in various locations including that of a vacant retail space in an active mall allowing viewers to critically contemplate upon the nature of consumption.
