Often, at archeological sites, objects are found whose use and purpose are unknown to us. Clues may be found in what lies in situ around the object. My work incorporates a found or made object as a source/starting point, surrounded by glass and steel as additional narrative elements to redefine, or embellish the object as a quasi-historical object. Most work is also displayed on funky museum style armatures and or under glass. -Mitchell Gaudet
