Carrie Ida Edinger's Internet-based Collection Project
At the end of 2015 this blog will be inactive. This blog was utilized to post my experiences, preliminary research and the process of my interdisciplinary practice. The four year content of this blog, from 2011-15, concentrates on forming my Internet-based collection project. The postings pertaining to research or involvement with individuals/ institutions with aspects of the collections do not intend to be disrespectful of the history or present public institution/ museum practices.
The under-representation of the artist voice in specific research methods is what convinced me to write from my perspective as an American woman artist crossing disciplinary boundaries. The purpose of my first person writing is to expand the twenty-year old dialog concerning cross-discipline practice within art and anthropology. The distinct content includes approaches from each discipline that I have drawn from and includes an evaluation of how digital media has altered those disciplines structures for the process of my Collection Project.
