During my residency at Elsewhere Museum, I hand-picked items in their collection for staff and residents to instinctively identify a date, time and location of birth for. Once the object was assigned a birthday, I created an interpretive map of its personality according to astrological analysis where each planet, house and aspect is translated into an abstract sculptural mandala made from materials in the museum.

This project is an effort to illuminate the numinous, psychic exchange of object and human at Elsewhere, where the complex intersection of living and dead matter is muddled or redefined.
