” I have a project a little like Smart Gallery, called The Campaign For Objects in Purgatory. I am collecting people’s uncherished gifts, and the stories that come with them. If you donate an uncherished gift and tell the story, I will give you a badge.
The blue vases int he picture were a present from a chool friend years ago. When the recipient decided to throw them away, she discovered a note inside front he giver saying ‘Happy Birthday.’ And then she couldn’t bring herself to throw it away.”
