During the exhibition, interested participants may contribute photographs of their family and historic artifacts to be integrated into the exhibit. Evolutionary Artifacts seeks to bring together diverse cultures and family histories with projected images and objects that define history through our diverse ancestral heritage. It illuminates individual and personal ties across generations and communities along with national and global exchanges that have shaped and are shaping both concepts of identity and history.
The work continuously changes as images are uploaded and randomly projected on the work, walls and visitors and superimposed over printed images of early Americans. Simultaneously, an audio track speaks a litany of family names pronounced according to native tradition, along with the Beatles singing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, credited to Lennon, John - McCartney
