Tim Kopra combines archival materials and environmental samples from Mills College campus in order to discover fresh applications for physical and historical data. We all consume information in a variety of ways, pushing past the ubiquitous approaches of media through written word and the constant myriad of digital nodes of data - Tim Kopra is pulling out information from the archive of Mills College Art Museum. Distilling information into oils and essences, reconstituting correspondence from chosen exhibitions into paper for correspondence with the archive, mulching data with the local terra through compost, and offering an altered kaleidoscopic perspective of visual findings, Kopra presents a laboratory that opens new passageways into the archive and history of Mills College.
