As part of the Speculative Design Archive, the Dead Darlings collective organises an anonymous auction of a number of objects that have been put forward by archive creators themselves. Instead of money, stories - and the reasons why potential buyers would like to have the pieces - are traded. Each blow of the auctioneer's gavel confirms the variation in interpretations of the 'value' of archival pieces.
