When discussing the project with a friend, she asked me if she could get involved, to set up a sister venture that allowed her to explore the contents of her loft. She wanted to embark on a mission of clearing and cleansing the loft as a symbol for letting go of certain events occurring in her life at that particular point in time. Our conversations developed into a wonderful recollection of past experiences, considering the things we have kept for many years for those ‘just in case’ moments when we might one day need them again. Our thoughts then turned to the future of our collections: where would we keep these items and what real use and value do they have to us. This conversation inspired my friend to go out and re-organise her belongings to re-address certain parts of her life and identity, and for me, to open up the project to as many different people as possible. She documented the process but sadly she passed away before it could be presented as part of the Instability in Stability journey and experience.
