"We live in each other...we live in things" (Virginia Woolf, Between the Acts)
In this class, students investigated how their individual identities are situated in particular communities and anchored by objects. The objects in this exhibit were chosen because they represent relationships to those communities. Some objects are so much a part of our day-to-day reality that we barely notice them. And yet significant memories, feelings, and connections to other people repose in them. Their concreteness creates a clear connection for viewers that allows them to understand the ideas, memories, and feelings of being a part of a community more readily.
