The art of collecting (or collecting the ephemeral)
January 25, 2011 § 2 Comments
Remember that time in your childhood when you used to collect the most improbable things, from stamps and magazines to napkins and bottles of beer, until one day you decided to throw them away? Well some people never gave up on their collections.
[Warning super long chain of projects coming up]
COLORcollector is a collective project of COLORSlab, the interactive platform of COLORS MAGAZINE, the quarterly edition of FABRICA, the communication research centre of BENETTON, the italian clothing brand.
In COLORcollector, collectors upload photos of the objects of their obsession: garden gnomes, air sickness bags, rubber duckies and anything imaginable.
