Designated Properties   

t a g

The process of archiving for a museum is, in and of itself, a politically charged activity. Taking objects and deciding what will be their permanent descriptions, regardless of origin, is problematic in disregarding contextual backgrounds.

t a g is an exploration on archiving people and what that connotes. Falling under Public Defense, this project seeks to challenge what it means to be an individual, who gets to define that, and our roles within it.

Local flora is dissected cautiously under the microscope. The peaks of clarity are surrounded by its fuzzy ridges. By observing these entities, one may recognize the textures and recall the odors.

All have been discovered near this site, yet nearly forgotten at a moment’s pass. The microscope allows us to share these moments—all are accompanied under the same light.
