Artist Andreas Gursky taps in on consumption

The finest newsprint on the planet, The Economist, ended the year of 2008 with a great story on why we buy the things we are compelled to buy especially around holidays, and the scary tactics of Wal-Mart and Sainsbury’s when they employ neuroeconomics in the marketplace. The problem as I see it relies mostly in the pushing forward of the concept of privacy, the same could be argued in relation to the fundamentals of personal advertising of the kinds used mostly in new media. Remember the  parellel with the Google debate and how The Evil One they are monitoring you in full, whether you enjoy it or not. Articles Here and here.
