The Museum of Innocence



We love how Orhan Parmuk, author of the novel…. The Museum of Innocence…. has articulated our vision. In his novel he uses objects to tell a story. As a companion piece to his novel he opened up a Museum, in Istanbul, of the same name that documents the objects in the novel. He now has published the Catalogue. Here is what Parmuk says…. ” let’s say in the pocket of one my coats I find an old movie ticket from years ago…once i see the ticket, not only do i remember that i saw this movie, but also scenes from this movie, which I think I have forgotten, come back to me, Objects have this power….”

Here is a link to todays New York Times article about him and his words about the meaning of objects and the stories they create.
