Project 54 grew out of curiosity about the pace of change and the nature of historic memory. To explore this further, I created a set of criteria I hoped would allow me to find interesting relationships between events or circumstances at intervals of 54 years.

I chose 54-year intervals because the timespan is both significant and comprehensible,  yet deviates just slightly from being a standard half-century mark.

Because I wanted to incorporate found photographic images, I organized my research around open source materials found on Wikimedia or copyright-free materials provided by the U.S. government.

In 2016, Project 54 was part of Creative Capital's "On Our Radar" initiative.
