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.
