O'Connell recognizes shopping as one of the of the only times you can see large numbers of people interacting with their environment. Within this, Walmart is this global icon of mass consumption. He sees it as the most visited interior architecture on the planet.

The series started following a single model, but has evolved to include the muchness of products, and the typical American shopping experience.
