Tasks / Museum Of Artifacts From The Temporal Desert Of Disinterest

A newspaper from this morning is useful. A newspaper from 100 years
ago is interesting. A newspaper from ten years ago is garbage.

Your task, fearless Chrononaut, is to explore this phenomenon by curating an exhibition of material drawn from the nameless region that lies between utility and artifact. Include a detailed analysis that contextualizes each piece in relation to the other works and the culture and period in which they are embedded.

One piece of advice: be wary of nostalgia and eschew kitsch, for they will only lead you astray.

PDØ/Princess Pixie suggested this weekend that The Bins would be excellent for this task. Any other rock-bottom thrift store would do well also. Clothing is trickier than other types of things, given retro and "ironic" fashions, but there's plenty of other junk out there to be found.
