ReDo, 2010. Residential College Art Gallery, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

For ReDo, I recreated my dorm room from the mid 1990s in the program's gallery in the same building.  The installation includes all things I still own from that time, including photographs of family and friends, keepsakes from childhood, and ratty clothes.  It is a project about memory and personal archaeology, a material confrontation of nostalgia.  What better evokes a memory of a space?  A recreation or an encounter with objects owned at that time? Installation was created on site while in residence. For more information about the residency, please visit here and here.
