The Matt McVeigh 'Trolling Shopping Cart' sculpture is an amazing art project with a very deep meaning behind it.

This piece takes identical shopping carts and puts them together in a very large, never-ending spiral much like a roller coaster. The reason behind this design was to symbolize the unstable consumer culture that can be identified within society today. People are constantly buying with no end to their material desires and the infinitely spiraling trolleys represent just that.

This sculpture uses many shopping carts which shows how vast the material market is and then shapes the carts in a circular diagram to signify an ongoing trend of consumption in society. It is a truly ingenious piece that can be looked at leisurely or in-depth. Stats for Grocery Trolley Roller Coasters Trending: Older & Mild
