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:
