Nothing but gold

People tend to love things. We give them a lot of meaning and power. We transform them into mascots, totems, and make them very important in our life. We can’t live without them. But, I think we often forget or barely realise that all the things we own have their own function even if we never use them in everyday life. 

Some of the objects we never see until we need to move anywhere and pack all the stuff. Anyway when we find them we turn on our memory and that thing plays as a trigger, as a tool, connecting us with the past. 

My series is a reflection upon this physical part of our life. And the way, so to say, that we make gold out of regular things. Our personal gold which sometimes is hard to get rid of.
