Kate makes piles of work about the things that we buy (and want) and the emotions attached to our stuff. She also happily thinks and draws for good people and companies. She have been making work about consumption since 2002, teaching since 2004 and drawing until her hand cramps since 2006 (ouch).
Her first book, Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today? was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2010. Since then, she has collaborated with them to produce two more titles about documentation and consumption in 2012 and 2014.
