Home Office consists of a computer workstation playing my video Angola, Iraq, Vietnam, Vicodin. The video investigates consumer culture through a transnational lens, witnessing how it both shapes and is shaped by local conditions and local desires. The computer is flanked by pharmaceutically-branded office supplies featuring logos of bestselling medications used to treat “diseases of affluence” such as diabetes, depression, heart disease, dementia etc.—conditions that are now epidemic worldwide. Unlike infectious diseases that affect the global poor, diseases of affluence are associated with increased wealth in a society. .
