We impose narratives upon objects, we extract narratives from them, and we save narratives within them.
—  Significant Objects mastermind Rob Walker reflects on Emily Spivack’s fantastic Sentimental Value project-turned-art-show, a treasure trove of human stories found on eBay, echoing MoMA’s Paola Antonelli, who memorably asserted that “the bond between people and things has always been filled with powerful and unspoken sentiments going well beyond functional expectations and including attachment, love, possessiveness, jealousy, pride, curiosity, anger, even friendship and partnership.”

Well, I don’t usually go for art contests (haven’t done so since high school), but when Doug Walker announced a DVD cover contest, I just couldn’t resist. I worked intermittently on this during the past month or so, and even if it doesn’t make it to runner up, it was still a fun painting exercise in a style I had never attempted before (And of course I had to go for the Boris Vallejo route here!). As I often say, I should do this sort of thing more often.
