Virtually Mine


Virtually Mine is an interesting exhibit created by CITIZEN:citizen for the Peel Gallery.  The exhibit examines the value of objects.  By value, they don't mean how much it would sell for at an auction, but what kind of value  the object has to its owner.  The general public is invited to bring objects into the museum to be cataloged for the collection. When someone submits an item they describe themselves, the object they are submitting and the explanation for its inclusion.  One of my favorites is the Armani Handbag included in the image above. The owner explained its value by saying "It's my favorite bag.  I think it's extremely classy and I got it on sale in SoHo for nearly nothing.  I feel sexy when I use it."
