It took me a while to think of how to prop my suitcase open in the gallery and stick with the theme of a journey and imagination. I eventually though of using books to prop it open, because they take you on a journey using your imagination and people often take them on trips with them in their suitcase. I chose to use Oliver Twist, The Three Musketeers, and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, because the first two are old classics and fit the vintage theme of my work, and the third is a modern take on a classic, which fits with my aesthetic.

My parents dropped off my suitcase yesterday, I thought I would share some photographs of it to help people imagine how my project is going to look when it is finished. The suitcase is a little plain at the moment but I will be sticking stickers on it and material and things, that’s if I can make myself deface it, I do like my suitcase. There are quite a few flecks of paint on it, but with a bit of scratching I can get them off, but I kind of like how it looks, so ill have to see what I want to do when I have all the photos and things to go in it.
