For his first solo museum exhibition, Daniel G. Baird (b. 1984) invites us to contemplate the different mythologies that shape our cultures and everyday lives—past, present, and future. Referencing archaeological practices and display strategies, Baird presents objects that evoke a sense of wonder and timelessness. A thirty-million-year-old fossilized tortoise shell; large-scale casts of a cave wall; digitally designed and 3D-printed hardware: What do all these have in common? Through and around them, narratives new and old are created, and these mythologies attempt to organize and make sense of the world in which we live. Yet, like the allegory of Plato’s cave, Baird’s works of art are also shadows of other things, ideas, and beliefs. They remind us of all we don’t know, or struggle to comprehend. The meanings of these objects are to be continually sought after, questioned, and scrutinized—like metaphors, always in the making. For in the end, what do we know? And how do we know what we know?
