ARCH OF REG TOTEM_6067

The Archaeology of Regret is an ongoing series of photographs and sculptures that look at the sorrow and regret of possessions. Originally called, Came and Went, it further evolved into three specific projects.
Regret being about the things that we collect that stay where they land. Their owners can’t be bothered to deal with them. The regret is that they will get to it someday, but they never do. This melange is their existence, their legacy.
Nearness references Rauschenberg’s or Irving Penn’s idea that inspiration can be found on the street. It is remarkable what things find themselves juxtaposed beside other things at the side of the road. Discarded objects who’s only story is this randomness. Archaeology will only learn from this culture that is was about waste and excess.
Timelines are totems that represent the document of time found when an archaeologists dig down to reveal the different periods of human existence. Nature giving way to consumption and abuse. Nature is always trying to absorb and recycle but man made things may last for an eternity. This is the true Regret.
