Once, the wardrobe was a place to store the robes of nobles, today, they are a chest that can house our own identities.  In this series I wish to explore the consumerist society, how obtaining material goods have become a crucial ritual for shaping and transforming our status and self-worth.  Incorporating tangible objects, representing a modern consumerist era and a distillation of a consumer. Belongings acquired and stored, some brand-new others fading and forgotten. Physical representations of their owner and the choices they made under their values and perspectives.  The figure is unclear, obstructed by the contents. Each possession a construct, a fragment of influence, changing the view.
