Event Description

John Freyer, a 1995 graduate of Hamilton College who decided to sell everything he owned on the Internet in a project called ”All My Life for Sale.” Freyer’s talk is in conjunction with Hamilton’s common reading theme this year, “Know Thy Stuff: The Meaning of Objects in Our Lives.”

Freyer began the All My Life for Sale project in the fall of 2001 in an effort to free himself from possessions. The project chronicled the evolution of this online project from initially a way to downsize one’s life, to an exploration of our relationship with the objects around us.
