In creating my body of work I aimed to mimic the colourful and polished appeal of advertising. By juxtaposing this with the words, “I want everything”, I intended to critique the unsustainable culture of consumerism evident in contemporary society. Through collecting and using discarded, children’s plastic toys the emphasis of the artwork is on the growing materialistic values of children and the manner in which a sense of satisfaction is unobtainable. This idea can further be extended to demonstrate society’s utter consumption and consequent lack of appreciation and value for what they already have.
