Here in America, we live in a capitalist consumer culture, where the value of human life depends on the rate of consumption. The more we consume and waste, the richer the big guys become. To the large corporations, we're no more than capital goods. And that's exactly we're encouraged to consume; Madison Avenue literally wants us to live for someone else's profit.
I believe this piece reflects that sentiment quite well. I like the use of the red scan bar; of course, this seems to imply that we're being sold. The scary thing is that the corporations aren't paying us; we're paying them.
We're the pawns of our products. It's sad, but true. Not to say that I'm against all consumption, but only that which is induced by media brainwashing and the like. If you're being told what to buy, you're being manipulated.
That said, congratulations on making me go off on another rant. Needless to say, I enjoy deviations with that ability. So... I'm off to look at some of your other work.
Thank you, point of art is to make people think, so I'm glad I could do that.
The meaning I had behind the piece was one day i was looking through wired, and at the end of each issue they have a parody on a future item, they make a fake advertisement for it, and this one was for selling clones, so it got me thinking about the govt selling us, or even us selling us.
