More on property lists

Play scripts sometimes have property lists which are lists of significant props for the play. I like the idea of exploring what makes ordinary objects significant to me. People sometimes create personal “shrines” at their work spaces (desks); I was struck by the autobiographical nature of these collections. Another sort of property.

At the Jurassic Museum of Technology, one of the exhibits was of the collections belonging to people who live in trailers. A curious notion. I group it with pre-enlightenment museum collections. I think I am interested in all of these because they are inherently not logical but created by emotion.
