MY WIFE IS So PROUD OF ME...

 
 

My wife is so proud of me... is a project initiated in the summer of 2002. tectonic industries measured the grounds of the house in Wisconsin in which they were living and produced an aerial plan depicting the placement of the house, trees, pathways etc. A grid system was drawn up, dividing the property into 130 squares, each measuring 10 x 10 feet. From September 4th to October 14th, 2002, each square was systematically searched using a metal detector. When a metal item was located, a numbered flag was placed into the ground, and a photograph taken using a Polaroid camera. The item was then dug up and sealed into a plastic bag, with the date, time and position of the find recorded.In total, 519 items were found including a multitude of screws, nails, pieces of aluminium foil and bottle tops.
