This project is about the different stages of possession. Is a recollection a possession?
Is a possession something that is tangible or could it also be a recollection of something you have seen before? You have different stages of possession.
Frequently I visit various museums to admire their collection of paintings.
After admiring the collection, I visit the souvenir store where they usually sell postcards. I buy postcards from the paintings that made the biggest impression on me. I could never afford the painting itself, but I can afford a memento of this. Next to the postcard I also got the intangible beautiful recollection of this painting in my head.
For the exhibition ‘Objects for sale’ I want to use these different stages of possession to design three different kinds of products.
The first phase is designed as a tangible object. The second phase is the recollection of the tangible object designed as a 2D shape, a collage you can put on your wall . The third phase is designed in a digital shape ,a documentary movie. All the phases represent different ways in which you can see the tangible object.
They all represent my way of working and looking at things.
