"My nod to Richard Hamilton's Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing? The author of the essay that spurred this piece told of his experience as a door-to-door vacuum salesman, and the peculiar effects of consumerism he witnessed along the way. I collaged products from old advertisements to depict the perfect home, according to the products' makers. Crowded with the latest stuff, yet always in need of more. After reading the story I immediately thought of Hamilton's collage. And realized just how obsolete my Hoover really is."
