Product Description

This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition Consumption Junction, organized by Bureau for Open Culture at Columbus College of Art & Design, and on view from September 13 to December 8, 2007 at Canzani Center Gallery on the CCAD campus.

"There is currently an extraordinary surge of interest in the state of the environment as we become increasingly aware of the cultural and ecological consequences caused by acts of over-consumption. A number of green organizations, labels, and certifications have contributed to more environmentally conscious ways of living and pushed these issues to a public forefront. But egregious waste, over-indulgence and mass consumerism continue to define contemporary society. Environmental activism is expressed in the things we buy and how we live, demonstrating our support for a better world through collective consumption of organically certified and socially accepted green products, actions and services. Alas, it is still consumption."
