Abstract: 
<p>From the introduction: This zine is about objects. Everyday things. Things that surround us. Material stuff we have found, and that has found its way into surroundings, one way or another. Objects define who we are. We also use objects to define ourselves, to create our imagr, whether real or imagined. Then there is junk, like that I'm often trying to get rid of, but can't seem to part with. The stuff itself is not really what's important. The objects represent something, like memories. Objects are reflections, or outlines of ourselves. And desires that we have. Possibilities of what could be, or what we could be.</p><p> The indrect part is the random nature of objects, especially used things. Stuff that had a previous life, and somehow found its way into ours. Indirect is not specifically planned out, its a way that just goes its own way, and sometimes gets in the way of itself, full of intervening factors, people, and objects.<br /></p>
