lately i've been learning about Consumerism. there is such amazing information out there on how it creates the structure of our lives without us even knowing. this is pretty disturbing however becoming aware of this reality the first step to being free to choose for yourself again. i made a ring, a finger wrap, to remind myself and others of this invasive way of living. i thought about the relationship of the consumer and the businesses and societies that rely on consumerism "success". consumer is a label, its a title, in the business world they would like to think that we are wrapped around their finger, ads everywhere, tvs, radios, the internet all telling us what to buy, where to shop, what we should be afraid of, who would be the best match for us....this list is unending. so this ring changes the relationship to our role as consumer. we have the label wrapped around our finger. we are made aware. we see the truth. we can choose.
