SHAMELESSLY TALK ABOUT THE STUFF YOU COLLECT

psycollective:

Hello! I am currently a senior graphic design student at Pratt Institute. For one of my thesis classes, I am researching the psychology behind collecting.

This project is inspired by my passion for collecting various objects. Over the years, I have collected everything from seashells and Pokemon cards to state quarters and magazine scraps. The wall in front of my desk serves as an inspirational collection of notes from friends, postcards from galleries, and various other random findings. I also tend to keep a lot of things thinking that I will be able to reuse them later on.

People will (and do) collect almost anything. I am particularly interested in the value behind the objects that people collect. Some collectors collect things for their monetary value - with the hope that they will be worth more over time. Some collectors collect things for their sentimental value - because they spark memories of the past. Some collectors collect things for their inspirational value - because they fuel creativity. Some collectors collect things for their sustainable value - with the hope that they will be re-purposed later. And some collectors - collect just for fun. Many of these collecting motives may overlap.

Some collectors become addicted to the nature of collecting - maintaining a collection can be like a lifelong pursuit that is never complete. Other collectors find psychological security in collecting - as collecting can create purpose and a means to devote time/energy/money.

How you can contribute:

  1. Submit a photo of one of your collections.
  2. Respond to the following:
  • Name (first name is fine), Age, Gender, Location (state/country), Profession (this is all optional / you may also submit as anonymous)
  • What is it that you collect?
  • Why is it that you started this collection?
  • What motivates you to continue building this collection? Or, do you consider it complete?
  • If you had to part with your collection, would you sell it? Give it to someone you know? Throw it away?
  • Do you collect anything else? If so, what?
  • If you feel like you have more to say about your collection that wasn’t covered in the questions above, you can include that in the end.
  • Share this with anyone and everyone you know - it will help me get more responses. :)

You can send me your responses by hitting the “submit” button or by sending them to psycollectivethesis@gmail.com.

Thank you for your contributions, and I look forward to sharing the final project with you when it is complete!

What is something someone told you to change about yourself?

maddiwaddy:

Hi guys, I’m doing a senior thesis on others perception of beauty and how people feel the need to comment on anothers physical appearance. Please tell me what people have said what you should do with your body. Be it hair length, weight, wearing something, glasses or contacts, makeup, adding or removing a tattoo…anything. Something someone else has pointed out about yourself that sticks out in your mind.

this would help me a lot so please reblog with your answers to get more viewers!!
