DESCRIPTIONUnabridged Space positions itself as a visual commentary on consumers purchasing habits of products and services. The artist invites the audience to walk into an enclosed space where they are confronted with representations of an individual’s confinement in his or her consciousness.
Her installation is ascribed from her experience working in a capitalist industry where she observed how an agency encourages consumerism by extending credit limits exclusively for shopping. The artist believes that the decision making process of buying happens so quickly these days that it becomes more of a reflex, and puts rationality in the back burner.
Through this installation, the artist seeks to explore the motivations of the consumer. Hoping to discover if their motivations are brought about by other factors that only the individual experiencing the space can identify for himself or herself. These are assumptions that Dioso presents to be proved or disproved against the theory posed by the Rational Choice Theory.
