Living Life Though a Cash Machine
The idea behind this short form film based around how much we use and waste.
Using TimeLapse to speed up the high street.
DVD players, home computers, even two cars have become the norm for many people.
According to the Office for National Statistics, a decade ago just 29 per cent of households owned a personal computer. With tumbling prices and electronics becoming ever-more consumer friendly, now 70 per cent of households own a computer.
This is trumped by ownership of mobile phones – with 78 per cent having one, up from just 20 per cent a decade ago – and ownership of DVD players, with nearly nine in ten of all households owning a player.
And for the first time ever, there are more households that own two cars than who do not own a car at all.
Back in 1971 a mere 6 per cent of households could afford the luxury of two cars, while nearly half – 48 per cent – did not own one at all.
By 2007 that had changed to 23 per cent owning no car and 27 per cent owning two.
