A Collection A Day
Eighteen days in to the project Lisa has featured pegs, string, vintage portraits and packing labels, a row of eucalyptus leaves, playing cards and a set of vintage missals, each set photographed or hand-drawn by her own fair hands, each set making the commonplace look quietly extra-ordinary.
In her own words, Lisa, who admits to having been obsessed with archiving, organizing and displaying her collections since she was a girl, describes the act of collecting and documenting those collections as “as old as the hills” and goes on to say:
I want onlookers here to know that I do not profess to be doing anything new or unique or ingenious. I am embarking on this project because I love my collections, and I want to document them in a way that makes sense to me, and share them with whoever might be interested in looking at them.
