The Bureau of Suspended Objects: Objects in Use
This book accompanies "The Bureau of Suspended Objects" installation at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, opening January 28. The objects in this book correspond to the second section of the display: objects that belong to me or that I grew up with at my parents’ house. They come from bookshelves, desks, attics, and shoeboxes, and have been owned long enough to have acquired some emotional value – thus becoming more than an anonymous product at the store. However, it’s possible that this aura of meaning is visible only to their owners.
