Does a fictional story add real value to an object? Significant Objects thinks so. The project was founded to explore the relationship between narrative and value, enlisting great creative writers to invent stories about meaningless flotsam purchased for a dollar two at thrift stores or yard sales. Not only do we believe a story can add value to a thingamabob, we believe it can be measured. So we sell objects + invented stories, on eBay.
The idea for this group: We'll present an object. You'll write a story (500 words or fewer) that makes it Significant. If the Fictionaut community and S.O. curators like it enough, we'll publish it on our site -- and on eBay. See SignificantObjects.com for details (plus stories we've published, and object sales prices).
CURRENT OBJECT TO WRITE ABOUT IS This egg whisk: http://www.flickr.com/photos/significantobjects/sets/72157623155978709/
Proceeds from object sales in the project’s next iteration go to nonprofit/charitable organizations. The link below will tell you more.http://significantobjects.com/about/
