There's Not Enough Space
Needham Market car boot sale. I have visited this specific car boot sale for 6 months, allowing me to become closer to the community and to get to know the regulars and for them to get to know me. I became interested in the people and their backgrounds; for what reasons they have ended up selling there goods or rubbish. I have also become interested in the objects that they sell, who has bought it and how they have been presented on the tables. I allowed myself £5 per time I visited Needham Market to buy the objects that stand out to me. A lot of the objects I become interested in were the ones that are on the borderline of becoming rubbish. There is a thin line between what they throw out and what they sell. By doing this I want to achieve an artistic way of showing how people buy-use-sell-throw. We have this constant cycle that we go through, generation after generation as the new things become the old and we feel the need to update to the new, especially for parents and their children's toys. 20% of what people buy ends up in the bin, unopened, statistics tells us that four-fiths of that remain 80% is either thrown out , given away or resold after a single use, we are able to consume and we are driven to.
