Unintentional Collections

"A collection can arise out of intent but also out of negligence. Despite our best efforts to stay organized, objects pile up on our desk, overflow our file cabinets, and make junk drawers almost impossible to open and close. These happenstance collections speak of who we are and how we live. Curated involuntarily, the bits and pieces exhibit an honest view of the collector's way of life, important tokens and subconscious arrangement of moment's they can't let go of. The haphazard organization creates the semblance of a single collections, though each little piece tells its own story."
