‘The joy of collecting is driven by noticing what is overlooked and
cherishing the connected items for their individual characteristics.
In the presentation of this collectionit is hoped that the beautiful
qualities and patterns of the project can come to the fore and
demonstrate the value of looking again at things that might
at first seem indistinguishable’.
