Consumption is a collection of super-sized apple cores made from coal and gold leaf. It explores many issues; from energy consumption to food, the economy, greed and the environment.  Coal has been for Australia a cheap way of making dough but we cannot live by dough alone. These are complex issues with no simple answers.
