The Things I Carry

2 Favorites 9 Copies (view)

A collection of personal objects that characterize Jacob Carlson. This collection contains objects related to his adult years. Each object acts as a window into a different aspect of Jacob's daily adult life, and together allow us to see the larger picture of the teacher and father. Most of the object are utilitarian, their functions giving personal meaning to them over time. Two objects are gifts, and thus have the additional weight of the relationships they hold. Together, the objects demonstrate a value placed on interpersonal relationships and education: intangibles that carry great weight in the life of Jacob Carlson.
