Our charmed modern life

Do YOU have an amulet, talisman or any kind of object you are emotionally attached to?

My experience so far is, that people are very quick to claim that “they are not superstitious!”. They might be right, however, many of these very same respondents produce (after short consideration) an item with a very strong personal significance. We might or we might not call it amulet but we can certainly think about our reasons for keeping these objects and their meaning.

As part of my art project, I have been collecting photos of personal “amulets”. You can see a small selection of them here but today I have discovered this sweet little film that also explores this theme.

If you happen to own a similar item of significance, please get in touch. I would be very happy to hear about it.
