Curator's notes to self:

 

I’m hoping to raise questions about collecting, value, and conversations themselves being objects’, and my own internal checklist of what I’m aiming for is:

 

draw out the paradoxical nature of attachment to objects

re-presenting/rehabilitating/displaying/recording the discarded

re-commodifying the object from use value to entertainment

asking for gifts/loans to make public the private

recording the narratives/opinions of those who engage with the museum via objects

engage the isolated in dialogue

highlight the aleatory nature of collections

perform the role of museum curator/technician
