PATTERN OF CONSUMPTION PLATE

This plate pictures the consumption pattern amongst Icelanders in 1990 - 2009. It is designed to be a lighthearted criticism on the materialism during these boom years.

The pattern is a graph based on official figures for private
consumption during 1990-2009 taken from Statistics Iceland. The plate is an imitation of the very popular porcelain plates, collectors‘ items that have adorned Icelandic homes for decades.
