Everything I Own

2.5 hr Audio work and Packing crate

Everything I own is a continuously recorded list, two and a half hours long, recounting exhaustively every single item owned by an individual. It is a check list of all things gathered, made and purchased that make up an individual life, the many items that construct the internal workings of a home. And a sense of an individual through objects.

The voice is extremely fatigued, tired, worn out, almost sick, struggling, attempting to recount every single thing at a point of exhaustion. The works intention is to be overwhelming, absurd and a little sad, in the amount of things one actually owns and must always account for, maintain and look after.

The work points out the preposterous amount of things we seem to need and highlights the mania of consumption. From the Micro to the Macro, everything I own recounts all parts. Like counting all the components of a vast machine
