We hoard and surround ourselves with things to remind us of our past and to establish who we are. It’s as if the objects have got a magic power to stop time, keeping our memories alive. But when we are no longer here, forget, or dispose of the object, the web of stories disappears. And the object moves on, via a charity shop or an auction house, gathering a new story for someone else…
THINGS is a digital public art project where artists and writers create stories for objects. The objects are sited on eBay site for the duration of a standard auction – 10 days, including their new ‘story’, a made up biography.
