Moving On: Part 2


As part of this project I interviewed some of the travelling public on Wessex Trains to find out more about the issue of luggage and what things are chosen to be part of our journey and why. The results were sometimes predictable and often surprising. I would like to thank all those that took part in my survey.

To develop thgis idea and as a way of finding out what objects people may choose to travel with I asked a selection of people to pack a bag for an actual journey and write a short statement to accompany their selection of items. I was not awrae of the contents of the bags until they were x-rayed for me at the Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. The resulting images with the help of Ingrid Hesling, are proof of the mystery surrounding other people's personal possessions, their 'things', and the fascination that we have with needing to find out about them.
