Consuming Violence: the Lived Experience
Products and services that appeal to consumers through violence are widespread (e.g. violent video games, movies, musical lyrics, sports). Yet despite the prevalence of the consumption of violence, marketing research has largely neglected questions regarding the consumer side of consuming violence: why violence sells and what the consumption of violence means to consumers. To uncover participants’ feelings and meanings surrounding the consumption of violence this study uses the projective technique of collage creation. Preliminary analysis of collages is discussed.
