It used to be writing paper, then scented erasers, but my collections never got out of hand the way they seem to have done so delightfully for artist Lisa Congdon. She has so much collected that she’s made the Collection A Day blog where she’s posting a photo of things she collects every single day!


This is what Lisa Congdon says about her project:

This is a blog documenting a project that will span exactly one year, from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010. On each of those 365 days, I will photograph or draw (and occasionally paint) one collection. Most of the collections are real and exist in my home or studio; those I will photograph. Some are imagined; those I will draw or (occasionally) paint.

Since I was a young girl, I have been obsessed both with collecting and with arranging, organizing and displaying my collections. This is my attempt to document my collections, both the real and the imagined. Some of my collections are so large that I will need to photograph them separately over several days. I will likely not attempt to photograph collections in which the individual pieces are large in size or awkward in shape (i.e. my art collection or vintage enamel dishware collection). The only rule is that I must photograph or draw a whole or part of a collection each day for 365 days and post the result here on this blog.


Right now, she’s up to Day 83, so keep checking in to see more of her collections as the year goes on.
