Title: Spendthrift: One Kilometre Drawing
Materials: till receipt paper, ballpoint pen, pasting table
Dimensions: 180cm long x 60 cm wide x approx 110cm high.
‘Spend Thrift: One Kilometre Drawing’ is a kilometre of till receipt paper entirely covered on both sides with ballpoint pen. One year in the making, it is a memorial to pointless labour and reckless over-spending. It is an embodiment of the greasy, sickening panic one feels when faced with financial crisis and the very real emotional cost of consumption. Debt is considered to be a symptom of bipolar disorder.
