Obsolescence In Storage (places in space #58)



1. Written on September 4th, 2020
2. There’s a line in The Place Of Dead Roads by William Burroughs that talks of a museum of lost inventions.
3. “Spread out in dusty cases, devices from extinct cultures so remote in space and time that no link exists to tell the viewer what function they served.”
4. And I have long wanted to make a museum of lost inventions.
5. Images culled from old adverts
6. Or photos
7. Or lines from books
8. Where technologies are mentioned
9. Off hand
10. And unexplained
11. But I have never done this
12. And probably never will.
13. So all I have is this.
