People and Their Possessions


Many may deem it superficial to create an impression of a person by simply observing the objects they possess. We have however been making these inferences from artifacts recovered since the earliest of civilizations. 

From cave paintings to venus figurines; artistic workmanship and self expression can be found in the most telling forms from the physical objects we have recovered over the years. Fast forward to the present day in which fashion, film, music and other modes of artistic expression are accessible at the tap of a touchscreen.

What can we understand about ourselves as people from the possessions we surround ourselves with.‘People and their possessions’ is a series of web interviews with artists and everyday inspiring people and a somewhat voyeuristic peep into their own environments and the objects they own.
