“Pocket Music” by Joseph Bourdeau, Lauren Jones, Mari Kawamura
If you turned out your pockets and let all the junk tumble down into a little puddle on the floor what would it look like? Some stuff you saved? Some stuff you ended up with by accident? Maybe something someone gave you? Probably some garbage. We went through our pockets and found a kazoo, some old-timey music and a couple vague memories of weird bugs. Intimately loud, squirming with life, and a little chaotic, Pocket Music offers a moment of thanks to all the odds, ends and doodads we find lying around.
