Museum of Me: Untitled

Object: Soccer ball

My first object is a soccer ball. It is red and blue, and it has a Barcelona logo. It smells like feet. When I hit it on the ground, it has a different sound from the normal ball. It’s special, when you touch it’s smooth leather you feel interested to play with it but I don’t want to play with it because I want to preserve it as much as I can. 

Object: PlayStation Two

This object is a playstation two. The playstation’s colour was grey, but now it is faded and 25% of the colour is gone because it is very old. It smells like old metal from it. When I open it, I hear the annoying noise coming from it but it is also funny. When I touch it, it is very soft and smooth, I like to always touch it. But now I don’t play, because there are better technologies, but I just keep it for memories. Maybe I will show to my children how it was in the past.
