This was a project I worked on throughout the summer of 2003.  I wasn’t adjusting well to living in Portland and going to college, so I looked forward to summers back in Prineville.  Central Oregon felt like a kind of medicine at the time to help me through the winters in Portland.  I collected objects over the course of the summer to add to the case.  The last objects I added were the sand and the rain water from a thunderstorm the last weekend before I went back to school.
