Light Grey Art Lab
"The Record Collection" by Emily Hummel
Bower Bird was a postcard project celebrating the art of collecting, curating, and personal artifacts. Each of the 90 contributing artists created a limited edition series of postcards with subjects ranging from historical memorabilia, house plants, fossils and bones, national park attire, ancient books, and more. These objects may not have monetary value, but a rich history of our lives, interests, and personal influences- the collection is a modern day cabinet of curiosities.

About this collection:
"As a teenager, I started collecting vintage 78rpm records when I fell in love with swing music. What no one tells you is that they're easy to break. I opened my box of records that had been in a storage unit since high school and found that I had lovingly saved all the broken ones, unwilling to part with them even in their unplayable state."
