Museums, galleries and public spaces are all developing new ways of entertaining us in a time when we are missing the things we love. Taking inspiration from how these spaces are responding to the coronavirus crisis, Alice Fraser has collected and curated a series of stories all sharing treasured and intimate memories.
They are displayed within a virtual space called For The Love of Stuff, a collection of artefacts that may seem mundane to some, but are treasured possessions to others. For The Love of Stuff is a museum of the experiences and memories that have shaped us all. There is comfort to be found in the interaction with objects once owned by our loved ones, or objects that trigger memories from long ago, especially when we cannot connect physically.
Fraser’s practice emphasises research and a detailed story and purpose leading to the desired outcome, rather being guided by a pre-determined type of outcome, such publications, exhibitions, brand and identity or UX.
She has experience working as a freelance creative and also within a variety of agencies. During her placement year, she interned at Music Agency in Manchester, Human in Sheffield and Interabang in London. She was also an Assistant Graphic Designer at The University of Sheffield for almost two years.
