In these archives I documented the accumulation and weathering of objects, words, and lives. Mystery found in the small pencil marks, forgotten notes and misplaced belongings. I investigated the quiet corners and darkened basements. I imagined the people who always seek out the same chair, and found beauty in the anonymous marks they left behind.
