Artist Statement

 

I started Obsessive Consumption in 2002, when I decided to photograph all of my purchases and, in turn, created a brand out of the process to package and promote. I am currently drawing something I purchase every day, happily illustrating for others, teaching design to college kids and making piles of work—zines! pillows! photographs! buttons! more drawings!—that mock/celebrate our relationship to consumer goods.

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.
