Proteus Gowanus has a call out for Migratory Objects and their stories, like the one below by Friends Of the Pleistocene.
I’ve been looking around for an object with an interesting provenance. A lot of my favorite objects have stories like this: “I was walking along and I found this weird object on the ground!” Maybe the object’s interesting, but the story isn’t. I’ll have to keep looking.
It also reminds me of this story by Robert Olen Butler.
I unfortunately missed Husk Lab’s Broom Making Workshop last month at Proteus Gowanus.
More photos of the event here.
More on the project in this post.
Someone is definitely getting one of these handmade brooms for Christmas.
