PAPER WASTE or TIMELESS CAPSULE : MARRIAGE LICENSE RECORDS

A recent trip to City Hall (as a witness to a friends’ union), got me thinking about the timeless importance of paper as a platform for all of the life’s important documents: Marriage License, Birth Certificates, Death Certificates.

At City Hall, i was ogling vast dusty records of these Marriage unions, initially a private affair, later a public entity. The Licenses end up on display  behind glass doors of fancy bookshelves.Paper has a timeless appeal. Handwritten records on paper are more meaningful than typed.  Signing someone’s guest book at a wedding, party or a bed and breakfast requires a minute of pondering… what kind of mark do I want to leave behind.
