I Bought All of These

Kate Bingaman-Burt makes her painfully mundane purchases, well, irresistible, or at least gives us something to make us feel less self-conscious 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, created 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.

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.
