The Pocket Scavenger
Author: Keri Smith
Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, you’ll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, you’ll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polka dots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it “pretty,” and so on.
The results: you’ll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might not have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is utterly unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you.
