This video is a perpetual loop documenting consumerist society’s outer fringes. The work combines the traditional boot fair sellers with their internet counter parts to try and reveal similarities and differences between the two. The object for sale on the internet features in the photograph of the boot fair to reveal the seemingly limitlessness of mass production.

I found one object from each boot fair photograph and found it for sale on the internet. I wanted to show that this object exists within another realm of retail. By doing this I hoped to accentuate the over production of objects because the objects in the boot fair are unwanted yet there are more being made.
