In this work, I set out to archive my brother's bone collection. However, the "books" also act as descriptions of his process in searching for & collecting bones as well as preparing them.
The slide collection's illumination alludes to the final step of bleaching the bones with sunlight. The cupertino book's cut-outs obviously hint at the removal of these objects. But they also imply the importance of finding things insitu, or in their original place, including what other things are found around them and their location within the depth of the landscape. Finally, the organic shaped book becomes a slice of earth while its contents archive the surface texture of the bones. All of these objects sit comfortably in their place among a landscape-like base.
