Time to shift gears, just a little.

Well the last few months have been full of school and searching. Researching those in the past poses any number of issues. Can we really piece together the lives that these people had when they were alive, and if we are putting this life on display how do we go about that with giving them the greatest amount of dignity. This semester I am also taking a class that goes into the display question even more. We talk about Native American displays, what is art what is artifact and what should not be on display.
At lunch the other day a friend of mine said, “Do they ever consider how white people are displayed?” Do we think how homo spaiens in general are displayed?
Cemeteries are also displays of a different sort. Funerary art of the past and present.
