Emotional garbage needed for digital landfill

Wed Dec 02, 2009 00:00

Soul Recovery Systems is an interactive, creative and free “emotional garbage” service providing people with an opportunity to rid themselves of objects that hinder their lives. SRS accepts objects in any form as long as there are sincere emotional connections attached to them. That said, all objects given to SRS must include an object release form: http://www.soulrecoverysystems.com/pdf/SRS%20object%20release%20form.pdf where the releaser must enter their reason for desired disposal. Once objects and reasons for disposal have been received, they are put under intense observation for SRS to determine the best possible method of release.
In the end, a photograph of each object, reasons for release, and videos of each object release are uploaded to the digital landfill where the less burdened can view their once hindering objects in digital form.

Here is the link to the SRS website: www.soulrecoverysystems.com/
And make sure to check out the digital landfill:
http://www.soulrecoverysystems.com/landfill (more release videos and
objects will be uploaded daily).
If you are interested in participating, please see the disposal page http://www.soulrecoverysystems.com/disposal or email us at srs@soulrecoverysystems.com


The Stranger

United States of America

A while ago, I found a stack of photographs of a strange young man on the shelf of a second hand store. The pictures sat inside my desk drawer for a month until one day, I pulled them out and began sending them to friends and other folks via post, asking them to mail or email me their own written stories about who they believe he is.
In this project, I am curious about the different responses to one image of a complete stranger. How do we see each other from a distance? What are our judgements or reactions to images of strangers?

As I receive responses, I'll be posting them onto The Stranger web page then will eventually compile them into physical book form.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please email me (ff1@felicityfenton.com) your physical address and I'll promptly send you a picture. Please specify in your email or mail If you prefer to remain anonymous, if not, your name will be used for both the online and book project of the Stranger.
