I am creating this body of work based on how we as a society interact and utilize our every day valuable possessions. These would consist of personal items such as our keys, wallets and purses, As well as how well we are able to hide them from strangers, insofar as to where we personally choose to place them. It's interesting how many of us can be lackadaisical in this regard and as a result, many times don't carefully think about where we choose to place our valuable objects, until we lose them or worse, have them stolen.I am exploring the more thoughtful placement of these personal type possessions in our every day life, and how we have heretofore attempted to conceal them.
