Summary note:
In her previous work, Swedish design theorist and critic Linda Rampell has concluded that "the only -ism after postmodernism is consumerism". The postmodern condition has become a shopmodern condition in which aesthetics and economics have merged into aesthetonomics, which defines an economy of evaluating how much a being is worth. This book explores how design consumption is no longer a simple question of making purchases and consuming goods. Instead, it means to become consumed by images, wherein even identities are consumed.
