Phase 1: a cluttered chaos (a study in mass)
My critique of working in the high-end retail industry for six years. The mandatory accumulation of commercial goods. Expensive, designer items in complete disarray. The commercialization of a designer lifestyle that is tailored towards the designer's ideal, and unattainable life. I am perplexed by the fact that I wear about 2% of the clothing in this case, yet somehow I have managed to store these items in my Chicago apartment...but why?
