The Goldminer Project
 Started in May of 2009, The GOLDMINER Project is an anthropological
 approach to observing the practices of visual artists. To date, the  
 project includes over 180 artists in the US and abroad. Their
 curiosities(excluding artwork) are photographed and archived within  the following six categories: MASCOTS, COLLECTED OBJECTS, RITUALS,
, and HABITAT. The following is a collection 
 of photography and writing on the conversations that have come forth.
