Richard Hamilton's Just what is it that makes today's home so different, so appealing? is one of my favorite pieces of pop art. I love how it represents how technology and advertising began to consume peoples lives. When you look at the collage and see the room crammed with icons of the consumer world it almost feels over whelming, like people were in a sense, being suffocated by consumerism and popular entertainment. I also love how Hamilton places the objects to create a successful 3 dimensional scene.
