There is something so fine and so human about nostalgia; the need to hold onto past stages in life. We keep things that brings up memories, things that we may never again use or even look at, but which are nevertheless difficult to part with. It is such an irrational and uncensored behaviour, like a universal mindset-error. The collection illustrates the friction between present and past tense that appear in nostalgia, in the desperate but loving desire to hold onto something.
