Over the last few weeks since receiving this brief I have been leaving objects with labels all around Manchester.
This idea came about as I was interested in the ways in which the general public interact and engage with art or in some cases do not – I sent the first lot of objects out without having too much of a high expectation as to not be disappointed should I fail to receive anything back from them. This however would have spoke volumes about the way humans react to such projects in itself which would have been equally as interesting to dissect and unpick. As it happens they were a huge success and I got a great responses. since the initial batch I have introduced some new items such as lego figures and plan to continue sending out objects as the project develops and keep collecting a bank of images. The glasses play with the idea of the ‘selfie’ and i plan to send out more objects which encourage the participant to engage with taking a picture of themselves.
