  Originally conceived in 2001, the RELICS installation attempts to chronicle the 300 year history of Detroit through found objects alone. Thousands of decaying and eroding man-made objects are organized into grid like reliquary walls, creating a natural history museum of the future. A labor intensive collaboration with Clinton Snider, the installation was first exhibited at the Detroit Institute of Arts, and consisted of over 400 individual 'boxes.' Since then it has been reconfigured site specifically multiple times, and new boxes continue to be created.
