Synopsis

shoppin’ celebrates the liberation of the overworked shopping cart- set free into nature. In this new environment, nature adapts to the carts. And the carts adapt to nature by mirroring animal behaviours. shoppin’ playfully undermines the high value capitalistic societies place on consumerism, at the expense of economically viable and healthy communities. It is ultimately pathological in that it is unsustainable. There is growing evidence that ‘oniomania’ (Greek) or compulsive shopping is a significant and worsening problem with serious consequences, both emotional and financial and linked to dissatisfaction or unhappiness.
