Antiquities Application

Antiquities Application, 2016

Size: 8.5in x 11in

Medium: Inkjet Print


As part of an application to the Texas Historical Commission, for two months I documented the changes happening to the University of Texas Department of Art and Art History campus building during minor structural and cosmetic renovations. I began to admire the way reconstruction leaves behind physical traces such as painter's tape guidelines, small irrigation holes, warning signs without explanation, and differences in the colors of bricks. This print material served as a performance work prop for the duration of my exhibition at Locker 95 Gallery. Once retired, I sent the application to the Texas Historical Commission. I have yet to hear back on whether the antiquities permit was approved.
