'We buy things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like.' - Chuck Palahniuk This work invites the viewer to challenge their own perceptions of goods that are considered 'desirable' in today's consumer culture. By putting emphasis on the monetary value of each item, some onlookers may find the product more desirable, whilst others may have a different opinion perhaps bordering on disgust. Every item featured in the series has been hand-wrapped only in genuine Bank of England and Northern Bank notes to the exact retail value, thus creating maximum impact and a strong message for the viewer.
