I researched through sketches whether it would be possible to sublimate the state of our inability to stop consumption into creatures such as monsters as a metaphor.

Self Reflection

I found that using a consumption monster makes it difficult to talk about the value of each object.


I created many mock-ups that would serve as ideas for my next publication and explored how to create an experience-based book.


I decided to expand on the nesting idea in the top left and create a book where the book itself is wrapped like a Russian matryoshka doll.


I have explored my line of enquiry, which is the question of the in-transparency of consumption, by iterating the making of publications in the last semester. 

Because there are lots of possibilities in the term ‘in-transparency of consumption’ depending on the interpretation.’ Therefore, I needed to continuously consider ‘What kinds of in-transparency am I interested in?’, ‘Why am I struggling with this topic?’ and ‘How can I make this topic more specific and/or original?’ as the reflection of my studio works. I realised how critical practice is in deepening my inquiries. Each outcome elevates the resolution of my thoughts, allowing me to gradually observe what can be the key to my project.

As a result of the final publication, I became interested in what kind of psychological effect humans seek in their consumption behaviour more than necessary and how the value of objects plays into this.

Hence, I would like to focus on researching mimicking desire from Rene Gurard and Object-Oriented Ontology to project my work that awakens people to consider how we could have a better relationship with objects and change consuming behaviour in capitalist society.
