COLORS 79 is all about collecting. People like to surround themselves with objects, it’s part of our nature. Whether they are useful, decorative, beautiful, ugly, common or rare, we can’t help but leave clues everywhere as to our identity. Our objects reflect who we really are, and who we want to be, so says Peter Gabriel in the introduction to the book “COLORS Extra/Ordinary Objects” published by Taschen back in 2000.
Paolo has more than 500 ties, his room is full of them. This is just a small part.
Collecting stickers, memories and images from around the world.
COLORS 79 Collector is for sale at newsagents, bookshops and in the App Store from mid-December 2010 in four bilingual editions (English + Italian, French, Spanish or Korean).
