Fire from the mind, as vigour from the limb;
And life’s enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim.

—Lord Byron - Childe Harold Canto III St. 8

About:

Folk Object is an ongoing collection of graphic objects derived from the ornament & utility of folk culture. It's curated by Clifton Burt.

"The folk object stands outside both time and space. It signifies historicity and otherness...
The objects are less objects of ownership than of symbolic intercession, like ancestors. The marginal object stands outside the myth of progress embodied in modernity."
-Jean Baudrillard
