Just in Case. Keeping and Collecting Objects With Little Value

My self-directed study is on collection, and this project is about all the useless objects people collect in daily life. I asked students what valueless items they have collections of and why, and found that sometimes they did not know the reason for keeping these objects. I found this concept interesting so I made a book documenting the objects people have kept or collected for unknown reasons in my house. I then used some of the images to make posters which state the object description and the number of them which the student had collected.
