"Makeover Mandala"
by sabine7 / January 25, 2008
Virginia Fleck takes consumerism and creates wall-sized mandalas out of it, by way of used plastic bags. Shopping is spiritual. We worship at the altar of symbols, brands and logos. By making repetitive patterns out of this tangible excess of material, Fleck numbs the viewer much the way the insatiable need for more is at work. In a world where abundance does not equal enough, but ever more, we keep filling the bags.
