My website is a tool where I both create works, and index and exhibit projects chronologically.
Daniel Eatock is a London based Graphic Designer and Photographer. The material found on his website is particularly interesting and relevant to this project because he has a lot of collections in his work, and he documents these collections through photographs, which is the way I have chosen to look at my collection. Here is part of just one of his many taxonomies, simply entitled ‘Empty Drinking Glasses’.
On this collection, Richard Torchia (director of Arcadia University Art Gallery) said:
The collection plays on the appeal of getting something for nothing – in this case, the possibility of obtaining an entire collection of matching glassware.
I particularly like Eatock’s work because he has a lot of collections that are not only different from each other but unique in general. Some of his collections include ‘Considered Accidents’ – a series o photographs of cars that contain indentation as part of their design, and ‘Car Batteries’ documentary photographs of various discarded car batteries. Each collection is presented in a slightly different way, for example the ‘Empty Drinking Glasses’ one uses studio photography, whereas the others use documentary or snapshot style photos.
