OBJECT STORIES

“A collaboration with the Northwest Film Center, Miracle Theatre Group, and Write Around Portland, Object Stories addresses the subtle but vital power of an object to compel a narrative and provides an interactive platform meant to transform the public’s perception of “the archive” and their relationship to it. The show includes a soundproof booth, where you can bring in a personal item to speak about, having your voice recorded and photo taken, and then have your story added to the museum’s archives.” from the the Portland Mercury (here)

  1. Even though I’m not in the area, I’m definitely going to look up more information about Object Stories! I am absolutely fascinated by personal connections to objects! Looks like a really interesting collaborative work!

  2. I am really fascinated by just how much human beings attach narratives to objects – how much the existence of the object is thus rendered meaningful through the stories attached/ascribed to it. Object Stories is a great idea, and a really valuable project/process in the examination of how we invest the material world with meaning.
