This is a great snippet from the Art 21 series, episode Methodology featuring Mark Dion.
Mark Dions work examines the ways in which dominant ideologies and public institutions shape our understanding of history, knowledge, and the natural world. Appropriating archeological and other scientific methods of collecting, ordering, and exhibiting objects, Dion creates artworks that question the distinctions between objective (rational) scientific methods and subjective (irrational) influences.
Mark Dion is featured in the Season 4 (2007) episode Ecology of the Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century television series on PBS.
