spotlight: kate bingaman-burt

Kate Bingaman-Burt is an artist and graphic designer based in Portland, Oregon, where she is an Assistant Professor at Portland State University. She makes work loosely themed around the idea of personal consumerism.

Her blog What Did You Buy Today? explores her love/hate relationship with shopping: each day, she records an item she has purchased, be it mouthwash or french fries, in a distinctively quirky black and white line drawing. She even draws her credit card statements, tickets and receipts, documenting the whole process of consumption.

I love Kate Bingamen-Burt. How much more circumspect would we be about buying stuff if we knew we were going to draw it? (ooooh, I like those gloves - but hands are the hardest)
