I have been following Seth Apter's "Collectors Edition" for months and it's been interesting to see what kind of stuff people collect.
My collections are versatile and it would be impossible to display them all simply because it would take days to photograph or scan them. All my life I have been gathering stuff because of personal sentiments. Since I discovered altered art my collections took another direction: rusty metal, worn our books, old bits and pieces.
here is the small display of many things I collect, all scattered throughout my home and awaiting the moment to be used in my art...
1. Book covers
2. Metal tins
3. Bits and pieces (as older and dirtier as better)
4. Rubber stamps (everyone's astonishing about my investment)
