Garric Simonsen, the recently departed artist-in-residence at the James and Janie Washington Foundation (a newly energized program to keep an eye on), left us with communal junk drawers.
Toss in what you want, take what you want with you when you go.
Images and locations are on his web site, or you can find them just at random, by wandering the city.
Here's his description:
Junk Drawers are attached to random telephone poles and can be found by chance, or by clicking on their individual coordinates. It is suggested the participant leave any random object inside. The Junk Drawer thus becomes a curiosity of unspecified gifts. Participants are encouraged to take from the Junk Drawer only if the object they've choosen is of immediate value.
Simonsen is also in this show, opening at Platform tonight.
