This article focuses on artist Beth Campbell. Campbell often works with mass-produced household objects purchased from mainstream retail outlets. In Living Room, 2003, the visitor walks into a gallery and finds it furnished like a living room, but each of the assembled items, filled with hidden speakers, has been made to talk. Campbell's greatest moments of self-awareness had to do with a sort of paralysis, choosing a toothbrush at the drugstore.
