Your Pockets-Your Purse

I constantly have my pockets full, because of this I have always been fascinated at what the rest of the world carries with them daily. This project is a study in the fact that each of us are as unique as the things we acquire. It is about the charms and talismans that may be lost without the person attached to them, the items we need and don’t, and the everyday things that we just cannot live without.

This is a simple project and is open to anyone willing to participate.

1. Empty and collate your pockets on a single surface.
2. Take a picture.
3. Draft a list of the contents
4. State yourself as the author, or keep it anonymous
5. Send all information to;
samsoncontompasis@gmail.com
with YPYP in the subject line.
