Allan McCollum is known for the large installations created from the combination of several small items, produced by hand, but influenced by industrial production methods. Based on the concept, its production is characterized by collaborative and democratic processes, which require the participation of professionals and communities. His research explores issues related to mass production methods and the value of work in the context of mass culture, as well as the need to understand how objects acquire cultural, public and subjective meanings within contemporary societies.
