Dear__, is an archaeological excavation documented through installations and photographs. Two main dig sites were surveyed. Using a non-probabilistic sampling technique, I set out to explore the boundaries of the ranch where my father was raised. In contrast, I excavated, with systematic sampling, the suburban home where I spent my childhood.
A vast amount of site records were located prior to the dig. Cross referencing these records with excavated relics further clarified the historical context of our personal epoch. Presented here is the survey report summarizing the findings.
The materials displayed are a combination of recovered artifacts and objects I crafted.
