Traditionally, "junket" has the connotation of a journey. This meaning, combined with the obvious pun on "junk," helps to explain what this tag means to me. A junket, as I use it here, is a useful or beautiful object created starting from a piece of junk, preferably a random piece of junk. It is also the process of creating that object. I might reach into my junk box and pull out some bit of industrial or consumer flotsam and, after considerable meditation on its form and properties, decide how it can best be put to use. It is a creative exercise I enjoy very much, and the point is to train oneself to see the potential of things.
