My must

-- MY MUST --

I had an idea of what my "must" would end up being, but wow, this project was an eye opener! I've always been collecting pictures and quotes - but they always ended up in boxes, sketchbooks, stuck in the back of notebooks or in various folders on my computer. This project was brilliant to make the undercurrent of my thoughts clearer to myself.

As I live on a boat in an extremely small space that I share with other people, I couldn't pin it up - there was also no space big enough - so I did it on the floor one afternoon when there was nobody around to trample on it.

PHASE 1

1) THE COOL SHIT FOLDER

I go through phases, as my interests constantly shift from one subject to the next. My camera roll is a mirror of my current ideas/habits/obsessions/places I've visited and things I've seen. Most of the images on my phone reflect the images downloaded on my computer.

2) INSTAGRAM

This was a lot of fun - Instagram is a source of inspiration, but I never thought of approaching it in this way.

3) CALL MOM

Mom was in a different timezone, asleep... but I had a very good idea of what she would say:

4) TRESURE HUNT

My mother was a librarian, books and libraries were part of my life from the beginning. I always feel at home in places filled with books. My feet led me to the travel section in the bookshop, but there is also one or two things I heard in movies during this period that I found myself writing down:

PHASE 2

There were so many interesting clusters, I kept on shuffling the cards around. This is what happened:

I've always had an obsession with traveling, I guess I feel that need and pull of freedom more than usual at the moment. But I can't travel at the moment...

So I'll focus my attention on the second topic.
