Excavating Georgia is a project that involved the excavation of a stolen car and the visual presentation of the car's recovery and excavation process. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery through the material, whilst experiencing the possibilities of combining artistic and archaeological methods towards understanding our relationships to material culture.
The project resulted in an 80 page A5 artist's book by UK Frederick and Katie Hayne, inkjet printed on Hahnemulhe paper. The book and an accompanying photo installation has been exhibited at the Ábhar agus Meon fringe art event, part of the Sixth World Archaeological Congress, Dublin, 2008 and Australia Past Present and Future – artists books, Tuggeranong Arts Centre, Canberra, October 2010.
