    Someone died and now you have their things. Or maybe just one thing. It might not even be valuable. An old spoon or a glove. But you can’t bring yourself to throw it out. You can leave it here. Post your photos to Instagram with the hash-tag #InTheseBoxes. Or send to Dudley@dudleysaunders.com Visiting musician/artist Dudley Saunders asks Louisville residents for photos of the objects they have inherited from loved ones and can’t let go. This performance will incorporate the images you contribute. “In the fall of 1991, my two ex-lovers died of AIDS within two months of each other. What made it worse was realizing that nobody who remembered us together was still alive. The hidden meaning in ordinary objects haunted me.” Dudley Saunders Your personal contributions – gathered from our communities -- will be incorporated into video art for Dudley’s DC performance of IN THESE BOXES at Dreamland: a combination of video, song and stories that imagines the lives of lost people through the objects they left behind.
