3 directions to take my project

Link between personal possessions and identity 

  • Defining ourselves through possessions > letting go of a possession is like leaving behind a piece of ourselves
  • Different possessions between age groups, genders, areas of the word etc.
  • Minimalism = living without possessions
  • Badges/awards show our achievements

Superstitious possessions

  • Possessions that we are conditioned to think are bad/good luck e.g. horseshoes
  • Possessions perceived to be lucky through personal experience e.g. a lucky stone
  • Talisman
  • Belief systems > Christian crosses

History and sentimental value behind possessions

  • Family heirlooms
  • Holding onto an object, eventhough it has negative connotations e.g. wedding ring after divorce
  • Possessions distorting the past > holding onto the best/worst memories
  • Kinsukuroi
