Excavate. Investigate. Re-create.
This show celebrates the archeologist in all of us – the child seeking treasure, the adult mining memories, artifacts that define us and the threads that connect a family. We look at the past – what was – in order to project what will be.
Reverse Archeology deals with the concept of discovery. This may mean finding something of value just beneath our feet, or something hidden within layers of memory. The process may be physical or the search may be internal and reflective. Or it may exist in the realm of imagination.
The popularity of genetic testing reflects the desire to uncover our roots. Personal archeology can draw a dotted line exploring family traits like the origin of the family nose or story that’s been passed down -- all fodder for a time capsule for future generations.
In this show, we challenged ourselves to explore the layers of time and memory … and we encourage the viewer to do the same.
