Scrap/Books: Excess, Experience, and Ethnographic Expression

Will Thomson

The exhibit consists of field journal scrapbooks made over the past eight years in China, Mexico, New York, Boston, and Michigan. As a method of research and documentation, scrapping raise issues about the collection, contemplation, and deployment of materials. What might we learn from what we keep and discard?
