Ja Yoon has Too Much Stuff

  • I have an obsession towards collecting and purchasing small objects, such as stickers, postcards, bottlecaps, clothing tags, and so on. Over the summer, through extensive clean-ups of my room and frequent travels, I stocked up on my pile of collections. 
    Realizing how objects tell stories or represent people, I recorded my two travels to Japan, Nagoya and Okinawa, with my collection per day. I created another series of daily purchases, as well as attempting with hidden gems and items which I set up by color and theme. 

    *None of the objects photographed are created by me. All are purchased or given at various fairs or stores. Please let me know if such photography is against copyrights - If so I sincerely apologize and will immediately take this project down.
