Museum of Conjecture. Ritual Objects

About this project

These pieces typically reference fragments of past times and their reconstruction into objects suggestive of lost civilizations. They comment on the search for meaning and context by museums and collectors.

The ‘Ritual Objects’ are reconstructed from random circle shards ‘found’ in the Museum storerooms by the hapless curator. They are an attempt to make meaning from nonsense and to produce a collection of Pottery or Ritual Objects from a previously unknown Civilization.
