Portfolio > Archives (Ongoing)

This ongoing series is comprised of multiple, overlapping archives created using my daughter’s belongings. Each piece has its own categorical parameter dictating what is included, and any object could appear in many different archives according to the selected criterion.

Archives, often understood as authoritative entities with stable parameters, are presented here in varying possibilities and as the result of an active agent -- the artist/archivist. Examining a child’s material surroundings in this way frames the role of a caregiver or parent as active as well, but in the formation of a child’s understanding of the world through the management of their material experiences.
