Artist Statement

 

Starting in 2002, she photographed everything she purchased (finished in 2004). In 2004, she started drawing all of her credit card statements until they were paid off (finished in 2010). In 2006, she started drawing something she purchased everyday (still drawing!). She also is drawing your passwords, mix tapes, stolen goods and yard sale signs. Watch out. Ongoing photo projects include documenting sad, discarded thrift store crafts and Portland free boxes. She will also take a picture of the back of your head if you sit in front of her on the bus.

Kate Bingaman-Burt was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 1977. She founded the blog Obsessive Consumption in 2002 and has documented her personal consumption in many different mediums. Her first book, Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today?, was published by Princeton Architectural Press in May 2010. Bingaman-Burt is active in the indie-craft and craftivism movements. She provided all of the illustrations for the book Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design as well as the promotional materials for the documentary of the same name. She lives in Portland, Oregon, where along with being an Assistant Professor of graphic design at Portland State University, she also makes piles of work about consumerism: zines! pillows! dresses! drawings! paper chains! photos! She happily draws for other good people too: IDEO, Madewell, ReadyMade magazine, the New York Times, Wieden + Kennedy. Kate also conducts zine workshops and spreads the craftivism word.
