The history of the project is a study carried out by the author for six months in cooperation with a network of hy- permarkets. Sets of purchases on the cash ribbon were recorded by the author: the change of time of day and sea- sons of the year were reflected in these sketches. The infinity of the black ribbon and unpre- dictable combinations of goods were the basis of artistic speech. The project was exhibited in the gallery as a single long installation, closing space. Black ribbon (canvas with black background) connects picturesque still lifes (compositions from sets of goods on the ribbon), matching them in color and width. Black background acts as a new ultra-modern space in which Goods steam. This is how a single environment appears, surrounding the viewer with a ring of portraits of modern consumption.
