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?
