As human beings we constantly search for reassurance from others that what we are doing is correct, liked and accepted. Magazines and websites tell me what I should wear and how I should wear it and Davina McCall tells me how I should lose weight. The power of publishing, dissemination and celebrity is phenomenal; you could make anyone do anything. This book is not only a reaction to society’s vulnerability to fads and crazes, but also illustrates my point of focus for the last three months: OBSESSION. I looked into OBSESSIVE behaviour, particularly that of hoarders as I find OBSESSION with objects an interesting area. When does collecting become something more all consuming and what is it that turns a rather humble hobby into an unhealthy lifestyle? Surely you aren’t born to ‘OBSESS’, so surely I can somehow make myself an OBSESSIVE. The book displays my journey into becoming an OBSESSIVE and guides potential participants in the experiment. I appreciated the two parallel interests I had throughout this project; obsession and society’s vulnerability and I feel I married them well through the form and content of my book.
