This grouping of work is a continuation of my exploration into hoarding, specifically using the behavior as a metaphor for denial and deception. My experience with this pattern of “saving everything” started early in childhood and I always suspected it was an excuse to deny reality or just lie about it.

I see direct similarities to black/white thinking, the need to categorize and to preserve these things (ideologies, money) AT ALL COSTS. This behavior seems to be the prevalent in contemporary American society/politics.
