rock and roll artifacts: a wristband


Basically I just liked my wristband. And I was bored on the barrier, waiting for the show to start. But wristbands are a thing that interest me, as objects. As markers and signals and memories that we wear and eventually discard. Some wristbands have show-specific information on them, making them even more of a memento mori.

Plus I like pictures of peoples' hands. Someday I'd like to do a series just of concert-goers hands, and wrists, and the things (jewelry, wristbands, sharpie drawings) they wear.

Meanwhile, have some pretty lights, and a collection of footwear:

  1. If you ever see Suckers live, check out Quinn Walker's wrists. He tends to leave his wristbands on forever, so he ends up with quite a colorful collection.
