Psychologist Tim Kasser discusses how America’s culture of consumerism undermines our well-being. When people buy into the ever-present marketing messages that “the good life” is “the goods life,” they not only use up Earth’s limited resources, but they are less happy and less inclined toward helping others. The animation both lays out the problems of excess materialism and points toward solutions that promise a healthier, more just, and more sustainable life.

More pallet repurposing …
In this installation, pallets are used as tiered seating in a media room. The pallets’ open sides can be used as shelves for books, magazines, and other items. On the opposite wall, wall-mounted pallets set off a screen.
