Consumption Junction seeks to make us think (...) about issues and topics related to the general impact humans make on the earth. It is a nudge toward discussions—or at the very least poignant reminders—about unkindly or
merely thoughtless acts against our environment. It certainly doesn’t seek to provide concrete solutions to these perplexing situations, but the artists, designers,
performers, writers, and thinkers in this exhibition are sensitive to concerns of this worldwide environmental movement an ecological crisis. They share a conceptual language that addresses a range of topics from excessive spending, pollution, and urban infrastructure to alternative transportation, suburban sprawl, and recycling.
