This is a short piece about Douglas Broyles, an elderly Durham resident who obsessively collects bizarrely beautiful objects and curates his own exhibitions within his old house.

As an obsessive moving images collector, I was not interested in documenting every single object in Douglas’ infinite and ever-changing collection. I was simply fascinated, and hoping to visualize his way of seeing things.

Ultimately, this is a documentary about how the parallel universes of two obsessive collectors collide.

“I don’t think of myself as being inside of my body. I think of my body is being inside of me. I am inside of my house, I am inside of my body.” – Douglas Broyles
