My creative research is rooted in examinations of language, materiality, and information systems and how these mediators of experience are synthesized to construct understandings of our world. To this end, I have been exploring the methods we use to substantialize our memory through the collection of objects. Architectural spaces like libraries, museums, and archives stand as monumental repositories for collected knowledge. However, it is on the scale of more intimately sized receptacles like books, bins, and folders, where personalized indexing methods like bookmarks, highlighted text, and marginal notes show how these curated intellectual spaces are enacted through collaboration and performance. It is through the lens of my interest in architecture, institutions, and technology that I consider container forms more broadly as a means to inspect how integral the delineation of a system’s boundaries is to the framing of things like definitions and narratives.
