I passed these two chairs on the way home a few nights ago. They were from different furniture sets and I’m not even sure if they came from the same apartment but somehow I thought they had shared an interesting history together.
As an exercise:
Take note of what you see being thrown out by your neighbors and select one item. Write a brief history of where the item comes from and what it has seen. Has it passed from person to person and place to place like in The Red Violin or remained in one spot the whole time. What does the object “witness”?
