mixed media and audio track

Each participant was given a brown paper grocery bag and asked to fill it with domestic detritus. After the materials were collected and sorted by color, participants combined the materials in a subjective aesthetic creating a series of new relationships. The discarded debris of everyday life was re-aligned to suggest alternative narratives and implications.

Contributors were recorded talking about their objects and their voices were combined with other sounds to produce a non-literal soundtrack. Their words either augment the story of their ephemera or fabricate another history entirely.
