It describes instances of people through their essential, for them, everyday items. A laptop, a camera, a favourite chewing gum, a lighter, a pair of shades, are items that identify people; they are people’s extensions in a certain way. Regardless of the state, each person needs these items readily. A very interesting project knowing a person through the items. Enjoy.
