Research, archival study, and a conceptual analysis of five objects purchased on eBay for under $20.  Collecting referential text and documenting the objects I created a narrative between them that resulted in a hand-bound accordion book.

The purchased objects were a 1962 Route Map of Death Valley, a 110mm film camera, a Howard Jones cassette tape, a multi-tool, and a tire gauge. 

Book size: 5.5x8 inches (folded) 5.5 inches x 20 feet. (unfolded).
Special thank you to Henri Lucas & Camella Daeun Kim.
