i heard this story on NPR this weekend about a touring museum displaying the artifacts from ended relationships. people have donated anything from letters and clothing to grand pianos and prosthetic limbs. for some reason i find the idea of this collection to be both overwhelmingly melancholy and extremely enthralling - i think i love the idea of looking at a simple household item that has such an emotional history.
it's also interesting to note that the two museum curators were once romantically involved.
the above images are all taken from the Museum of Broken Relationships.
so would you visit? is there something you would donate?
