On the wrond side of history Triptych is a series of drawings based on the Brooklyn Museum's collection.  Overriding chronology and region as the cultural framing of objects, the drawings brings together artifacts according to the pattern of meaning found in the collection.

Animals Tamed by the Symbolic Crisis are objects from the collection where functional objects were made in the form of various animals. Metaphorically speaking, animals are hallowed out of their natural significance to be containers of function.  

In the Hands of those Represented is a still life composition of attributes held in the hands of portrait paintings found in the American Identities collection and of portrait saints in the Beaux-Arts Court Galleries.  

Gatekeepers place guardian figures from Islamic, Chinese, and African cultural traditions in a stance together defending the gates of heaven, hell, life, land, and death.
