The time we live in is displayed in our collection because of the various items included in it. Among our collection (besides the fact that it's all blue) there are items that represent our generation. This includes: Angry Birds, nail polish, Pepsi, Victoria Secret Perfume, and a lunch box representng The Nintendo DS. Those things also represents the average teens interest today. This collection does represent my personal beliefs because I use a lot of the stuff in the collection in my daily life. Portia Munson's work also represents different collections in different ways becoming an inspiration for ours.
