The Spent Pleasure Series Examines Consumer Apathy

Kai Wasikowski's latest series 'Spent Pleasure' takes a good hard look at consumers.

Wasikowski is commenting on the relationship between sex and consumerism, and our indifference towards both, when she juxtaposes disposable items such as water bottles, wrappers and crumpled magazine ads with human semen. The project is more than just visually appealing; it is probing, asking us how far we will go to commodify. Is anything sacred anymore? Or does any and everything have the ability to be packaged, sold and, ultimately, disposed of?

Upon first glance, this series is arresting and vibrant, but beyond the surface level it reveals itself as a meaningful project that complicates our notion of sexuality and the fetishization of material goods.
