themes explored include:

  • the relationship between collected ephemera and memory, how they inform each other

  • preservation of objects, of memories, of places. how does the process of preservation change what is being preserved?

  • queering our relationship to our environment, how can reconfigure our understanding of our relationship to the environment and to each other to create a more empathetic connection?

  • collecting as a process that both preserves and destroys, what is allowed to be collected, when and by whom? how were these decisions made, what was the rationale behind them, if any?
