This body of work, produced during a four-month study residency at Thirdbase Studios in Lisbon, examines the multilayered histories and fictions of artefacts and places. The project is focuses on how contemporary society collects and interprets stories and cultures, and how objects and life from our current time might one day join and be interpreted among an ever growing archive of human existence.

During this residency at Thirdbase Studios, I explored Iberian archaeological collections, the flea market stalls of Feira da Ladra, the family mausoleums of Cemiterio do Alto Sao Joao and the historical sites in the regions of Evora and Sintra. In the studio I worked with a number of materials and methods including photography, cyanotype, found object assemblage, concrete casting and engraving in stone.
