Collecting Compilations

Royal Academy of Art

2014 – Collecting Compilations is a series of carriers, which are the outcome of a research into the feeling we describe as ‘home’ in a world of urban nomadism. Home is the place where habits have become intuitive after endless repetition. When in a new environment one tend to look at caracteristic elements of the environment. During moments of movement between places – by collecting, observing and thereby analysing – one is able to acclimatise in a new surroundings. This act of gathering icons of a place becomes an intuitive habit on its own. The carriers become a tangiable representation of nostalgia besides evocing a private melancholic moment.
