This is a collection of objects that I interpreted as a representation of myself. To me the common thread here is all these objects are about journeys. Ether a representation of a method of travel, a way to document the journey, a way to share the journey, or an item that is a memory of a journey. For example the New York Yankees baseball cap is a memory of a journey. As a child living in New Jersey, my father and I would go watch the Yankees play in the Bronx. I don't have any memories of the games. I don't know who won, or even who the Yankees were playing against. What I remember is the journey from our home in New Jersey to the Yankee stadium all the way in the Bronx. I remember driving to the train station and taking the train to Hoboken as the sun sets. We would then go underground through a series of subways to slowly make our way under the Hudson river and Manhattan to finally emerge in the Bronx at the stadium. It is the journey that I remember and it is the journey, not the end point that interests me.
Here are what other said about my wunderkammer
The theme here seems to revolve around travel. Travel + documentation. You[ve got wht, 3 modes of transportation, 2 methods of documentation, 2 travel tools, and a world atlas of wine, and a few souvenirs. What do these mean? Apart from consistency it appears that you focus on moving, on being nomadic, you've collecting mementos of space and time without being tethered to any one place. But, and I assume the Yankees cap and Starbucks mug are mementos, they are also big brands items, in face. All of you things are big brand and I have no idea what to make of that, only that you've chosen easy identifiable and literal objects.
The collection seems like it's a representation of you interests & what you like. I don't get much sense of how you want to identify yourself to other but rather, your collection shows different parts of you. Your works have value to you and small memories from others, too. I see appreciation for nostalgia/age. but it's more about your person story/attachment to the object. Orrr I don't know, it might be that you cherish the object for its own value and thorough time, developed a more personal value/attachment. It seems like most object had proper usage and have been with you fro some time. And some mayne served mostly as a display, less interaction. yet still have equal sentimental value.
