by Wilson Oryema
Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist. Working across various mediums, including, film, photo, text, and sculpture. His works primarily explore human behaviour and its effects on the planet, through several themes, such as, consumption. His inspiration for this primarily came from self-reflection on his consumption and what he gave energy to. As well as that, Wilson also was spurred on by the collective unsustainable consumption habits we, as humans, employ, which are having grave effects on the planet.
WAIT is an expansion on the works of Wilson Oryema around the topic of consumption and its effects on the planet. The book serves as a commentary on various types of consumption we engage with on a day-to-day basis. As well as the polarising extremes these can bring about. Expressed through short stories and poems, the book aims to provide a more relatable understanding of consumption for its readers.
