The role of cultural artifacts is central to understanding individual social ethnic groups. These groups are defined by their histories, represented in social and religious artifacts, objects and geolocations. Due to overlapping histories and geographies, expansive and often conflicting definitions of these charged cultural objects and locations result in conflict.
The primary intent of this investigation is to generate images that represent cultural boundary objects and their role in defining heritage.

Note: The image making element of this project will take place beginning in late July2010.
