What's In My Bag
The other night I went to my grandma's house for dinner, actually to give my grandma the jacket I made for her that I just wrote about in the previous post (For Grandma) and my aunt and cousins are visiting and staying with my grandparents for the next month or so, but I hadn't seen much of them yet because I've been working a lot. My grandma always gets around to great topics when we talk for so long, and somehow we got around to the idea of what people carry in their bags. I'm not sure how it came up, but I started joking around about how people always make fun of me for the ridiculous stuff I have in my bag and decided to just have an impromptu performance art piece to show them that I was not exaggerating. I grabbed my bag and started pulling things out and through the lens of my aunt and grandma's reactions (mainly laughing), I realized just how ridiculous all the things I carry around are! And so, the other night, inspired by the ridiculousness, I went through my bag and photographed everything in it in an aesthetically pleasing (I think) fashion.
