warhol's time capsules...

over 600 boxes. all the same size. all filled with crap and treasures by andy warhol. stored away.
maybe insect filled pizza dough or rotten wedding cake might not pique your interest, but surely some of the ephemera in these will. dig through a box here...
and read about it here...

"what you should do is get a box for a month, and drop everything in it and at the end of the month lock it up. then date it and send it over to jersey. you should try to keep track of it, but if you can't and you lose it, that's fine, because it's one less thing to think about, another load off your mind...i started off myself with trunks and the odd pieces of furniture, but then i went around shopping for something better and now i just drop everything into the same-size brown cardboard boxes."
