Material histories

Heavy Little Objects

I collect heavy little things.

Tools, parts, toys, instruments, tchotchkes - the weight of some new thing in my hand, often small, metallic and well machined, compels me to add it to my life.

It's instinct by now. I can't say why these things are important, or why I haven't bothered cataloguing them until this day - they almost litter my office, my pockets, my car, my home. But this is as good a place to start as any.

This is fab. (via)

(Travel update: Still in Dublin, and using this rainy Sunday to catch up on some overdue work. Finally saw Kill Bill Vol. 2 yesterday, and I am *so* in love with Uma Thurman as The Bride. Off to Stockholm tomorrow.)
