Noteworthy: A collection of ordinary lives Barbie Procobis


Barbie Procobis’ PhD research examines the sentiments of ephemerality and permanence. Noteworthy: a collection of ordinary lives contemplates the methods and motivations to keep or discard and the impact that such actions may have in our everyday experiences, with particular emphasis on found manuscripts of unknown writers. Procobis’ practice transcends multiple disciplines, in particular drawing, sculpture, and collecting as process, which she employs to facilitate connections between the viewer and unknown lives.
