I feel like I wrote a post about collecting but I can’t find it on this blog so maybe it was in fact a conversation. The act of collecting is an interesting one. As I wrap up my third semester of graduate school I have been looking back at all of the artifacts (both digital and physical) I have collected over the past few months. Videos, images, unfinished word docs, paper, trash, weight and the list goes on.

I headed to good ole Merriam-Webster and here’s the definition I found:

collect (verb): to bring together into one body or place

I started to think about collecting and how it is really a gathering of memories. The very act of collecting is in of itself an experience to be remembered, imprinted, collected. Collecting experiences. . . blah, blah, blah. . . stream of consciousness writing again. . .

Here are some cool images I found of collections:

In particular, the elements that contribute to superior experiences are knowable and reproducible, which make them designable. . . all experiences are important.” – Experience Design 1.1

The sheet asked people, “what if?” We wanted to see how people would interact with a the piece to inform our project. Here’s what happened. . .

We had our second to last residency for semester! Ahhhhhh! I hope my group lands on our feet. . .

And I am stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner. You know that bloated feeling that you get when it feels like your stomach is going to pop any second? Yeah. . .

Umm. . .anyway, we’ve been looking at the Republican use of  “morals” as a brand strategy and the Occupy Wall Street movement.

This was an interesting group assignment, considering the fact that our group has a hard time deciding when to even start a meeting. . .
