The archaeology of art and the art of archaeology
view the Biorama series
This site presents two bodies
of work (2003-04)
"In memoriam" and "Biorama #
". The first uses
digital enlargements of photographs from my family's archive with encaustic
collages to describe the loss of my heritage that shapes my life's creative
psychology. Biorama #
is a set of dioramas that construct shallow
spaces that record and collect the ephemera accumulated over an eighteen
year period of studio work. Biorama# frames objects and metaphoric simulations
reflecting relationships with my past, my family's history and my desires
for the future.
These bodies of work coexist as
metaphors for the erasure of personal identity. As layers of memory
and reflexive spaces they spring from the archaeology of scientific
collections that originated in the evolution of the museum.
