Summary

"We all love stuff. We buy stuff, we consume stuff, we chuck stuff out so we can buy more stuff. The Stuff catalogue is a public art project by Canberra visual artist Bernie Slater. The catalogue takes a satirical look at the world of ‘stuff’ by presenting a parody of the advertised image of our shopping experience (the idyllic smiles, fulfilled dreams etc) and juxtaposes it with the more tiresome, banal and stressful reality of battling through the checkouts and browsing for bargains" -- Bernie Slater.
