Joshua Goode | Discovery of Ancient Texas Civilization
By: Shea O'Neill SHARE THE LOVE
Taking on the role of an archaeologist, Joshua Goode researches, documents, and rebuilds the legacy of an imaginary ancient Texas civilization. Creating staged archaeological excavations and presenting artifacts (small sculptures and paintings). Many of the artifacts discovered are broken, and Goode re-imagines how they were originally put together and what their purpose in this past society was. They often become strange combinations of identifiable objects such as toys, tools, and other items from contemporary American culture. Goode invents stories and historical context for the artifacts, conjuring an idea of the daily life of these forgotten people.
