This new series of beads symbolizes our personal search for identity
in our material culture. Bar codes and brand name material from
post-consumer tin containers recycle our unconscious consumption of
advertising, marketing, and possession as identification. In a
society so transitory and hyper-marketed one may wonder who we
really are, for how much of our own identity is derived from what we
consume and why we consume it.
