“Stay Home” criticizes the narrow-mindedness of mass consumerism and commodification in late capitalism. The feverish hunt for toilet paper which happened in western supermarkets in the early days of the pandemic, is visualized via its disproportionate consumption. In 2018, North Americans used 25 kilograms of toilet paper, whereas the average global per capita usage is 5 kilograms a year.
While “Stay Home” evokes the daily experience of Social Distancing, Quarantine and Isolation in the COVID-19 era, it reflects the intimate and daily dimension of being trapped within the privileged anxieties of western consumer societies.
