Kate Bingaman-Burt makes her painfully mundane purchases irresistible or at least gives us something to make us feel less self-concious about how frequently we spend to fill the void.
She is Obsessive Consumption.
Obsessive Consumption started in 2002 when Kate decided to photograph all of her purchases and in turn create a brand out of the process to package and promote. She is currently hand drawing all of her credit card statements until they are paid off, drawing something she purchases each day and continuing to make piles of work (zines! pillows! photographs! buttons! more drawings!) that all fits into this brand she's built which mocks her own relationship with her purchases.
