Atlas: Excessive Archaeologies • 2022 • RISD Studio I

Inspired by the Labors of Hercules, my classmates and I began the journey into this publication by gathering and generating collections based on a set of assigned tasks. Together, they informed a series of inquiries into the canonical tool we typically call an Atlas. Both individually and collectively, we meditated on two questions: “Who and where am I?” and “ Who and where are we?” Our strands of inquiry produced unexpected outcomes, some exhaustive, some haphazard, some overly indulgent. But each of these outcomes was a testament to the power of curiosity.

The spreads I composed are an attempt to catalog moments of deep introspection alongside the stories and traditions of the women who raised me.
