October 3, 2004

On of the greatest lovers and collectors of found objects passed away today my friend, Todd Butler died at the age of 39. Todd spent a good of his life in thrift stores, yard sales or anyplace where the unusual might be found. He was quite adept at pulling the most remarkable items out of dumpsters or just finding things beside the road. He delighted in the strange, the unusual, the obscure and the banal. His collection included everything from found audio tapes of personal conversations to Kirby vacuums abandoned in the street. He was most proud of having found a 1920’s era enema bag, unused and in its original box, which he sold for a tidy sum on ebay.
