At estate sales, treasure seekers encounter once-beloved personal
and utilitarian objects that lose their original meaning when
stripped of their context. Through my arrangement of the
spaces and possessions found in each home, I counteract the impersonal
nature of an estate sale and the way it distances us from
death. Attention is paid to physical markings of the environment
and the accumulation and age of items to help construct a past
life and allude to the passage of time. As members of this generation
pass away, their personal history becomes commodified;
but this project counteracts the disposability of an accumulated
life by prolonging the existence of the domestic environment
and the items it contains.
