Hey Anarchists ! this is a swap inspired in http://theburninghouse.com/, a very interesting proyect i found

They tell you:

"If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question."

So you will take a photo of what you'll take if your house was burning. You can take a single photo, or take many, like what you'll WANT to take and what you'll PROBABLY take. It's up to you.


  • You'll take a photo of what you will take if your house burns
  • Also write an explanation of each object and why you'll take it
  • You can (and are encouraged to) use your creativity
  • You'll send the photo to your partner
  • If you receive the photo with explanation rate your partner
  • And if you like you can submit it to the Burning House page !
  • Everyone is welcome, but make sure you can complete the swap.
  • You will have 1 week, its enough time.
  • If many people join, i will increase the number or partners, as this swap is really interesting and easy to send ..............................................................................

Is it just one photo, or more than one?

It MUST be 1. But if you feel creative, or there are too much items for one photo, you can send more than 1, or make a collage . . Its up to your creativity !

I have a question... is there a limit to how big the items you can choose can be?
E.g. does it have to be only what you could carry out by yourself in one trip?
Its just that I've started thinking about what I would want to save, and top of my list were a 'family heirloom' piece of furniture and a couple of paintings on huge canvases...
