For six months I met with people to discuss their object of emotional significance as part of The Object Project. My request to meet is a prompt —permission given to release information sitting at the back of the throat. Each conversation reveals personal investment and exchange, a transaction of narrative, our shared communication catalyzed by an object, and how it collectively transforms relationships with our personal myths. Each participant’s story serves as research for the content of my works of ﬁction. These vignettes of imagined, intimate moments create a space separate from that of the original object and story.
