For my Final Major Project of the Foundation course at Chelsea, I decided to focus on the idea of hoarding vs collecting. I am an obsessive collector of things such as old tickets, envelopes, empty packets etc. During my first year away from home, I managed to collect a huge amount of 'stuff'. The collections must be kept organised so I displayed selected objects in my room or kept them in files.

I created an inventory of every item on my computer then coded and photographed each object. This information was then turned into a 187 page book. Each collection is divided into sections.
