Emilie Plunkett explores the consumption of contemporary society; the continuous depletion and devouring of any available resource. In Australia, over a million tonnes of waste are produced per year. Once an item has been used, it becomes purposeless and it is discarded. The endless cycle of creation to waste is deeply affecting the world's ecosystem. Plunkett's Consume highlights the aggressive nature of waste production and the hidden cost of this unsustainable cycle of consumption.
