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 hand-drawing all of my credit card statements until they are paid off, drawing something I purchase every day and continuing to make piles of work (zines! pillows! photographs! buttons! more drawings!). The drawings in this edition document the things that I bought over the course of one week, two weeks, one month and four months in the summer of 2009.
Kate Bingaman-Burt | See All Editions
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.
