made up stories about significant objects
Sometimes a useless piece of crap is a hard sell. So what does one do?
From the site:
" THE IDEA - A talented, creative writer invents a story about an object. Invested with new significance by this fiction, the object should — according to our hypothesis — acquire not merely subjective but objective value. How to test our theory? Via eBay!"
Check out the site here and see all the objects made possibly more significant by stories and writers made possibly less significant by objects. Interesting concept, though there's no story good enough to sell me a cat plate. And I love my stories.
