Daniel G. Baird invites us to contemplate the different mythologies that shape our cultures and everyday lives—past, present, and future. With references to archaeological practices and display strategies, Baird presents objects that evoke a sense of wonder and timelessness. A 30 million year old fossilized tortoise shell; large-scale casts of a cave wall; digital 3D designed and printed hardware; what do all these things have in common? Through and around them, narratives new and old are created, and these mythologies attempt to organize and make sense of the world in which we live.
