Images of desire are both backdrop and stage direction in our consumer society. Pervasive yet virtually unnoticed, these images demonstrate what to consume and what to value. Possessions indicate our status and place of privilege in society, but when they fail to meet new desires and expectations, we abandon them for the new and improved. In Thrown Away, the Power of 7 Collective offers images of urban dispossession to counter images of desire.
