Collectomaniac aims to encompass the desire we have as humans to keep things we ought to really discard. The pleasure we take in keeping unnecessary detritus is a prominent theme explored. In focusing upon the detritus of one person's obsession I have been able to follow the desire through several stages creating images that reflect upon these ingrained fears of loss. Throughout the duration of the project the items became more important to me; the user of the product hadn't missed or longed for the objects as they had created a new safe supply. The transference became obvious and therefore I became the collectomaniac.
