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.

Investigating a New Theme
Recently, I have been reviewing my
“fieldwork” materials. The written descriptions, drawings, blog entries, and
still photos are an archive of the ethnography process used to form the
collection. It is a mix of materials that are of paper form and digital files.
I am inquiring these materials to develop a new theme for the collection. I am
taking into consideration the type of objects, the obtainability of certain
objects, the human interaction, and the senses to avoid redundancy within the
Desk area with "fieldwork" materials. January 2013
