from the collections series

Humans collect. This desire falls outside of the boundaries of necessity. From the simple act of pocketing a seashell to the grandest of museum collections, we try to capture and hold beauty, knowledge, and memory.This work is part of an ongoing series that explores the human drive to gather, classify and make meaning from objects.
