They say to write what you know. Collecting might be all I’ve ever known.
Hello, my name is Liam. I’ve created this new space to collect the stories behind my own collections, as well as those of others. Not all of these collections are entirely tangible, some are as much about the memories and experiences as the physical items themselves.
In addition to this, I’m interested in exploring the psychology behind our collector tendencies. What is it that has made collecting part of our daily lives? Does the mindset apply to other aspects of life, or are we simply always collecting?
The ‘all’ in this project by no means refers to a completist approach to collecting, more the vast range of different collections to be explored.
