As director of The Obituary Project, an eighteen year compendium of experimental salvage ethnography that transforms a quotidian form of narrative, Hope Tucker reframes the passing of sites, people, communities, freedoms, cultural markers, rituals, and ways of being. She has documented shuttered bread factories, contested monuments, fallen witness trees, and disappearing civil rights era landmarks; animated cyanotypes of downwinders and old instructions for making fishing nets by hand; recorded mobile phone footage of the last public phone booths in Finland; written the entire text of a video out of paper clips, a Norwegian symbol of nonviolent resistance; and retraced the path of protest that closed the only nuclear power plant in Austria.
