If art is what represents society at a given moment of history, then I think people from the future will have one heck of a time trying to figure out why we needed thousands of permutations of glucose, fructose and food coloring in slightly varying packaging.

Although this work has extremely strong formal elements and sociopolitical context, I find it curious to think of it almost archeologically and ethnographically. Are we a culture of false choice and why are we drawn to that as a society?
