The Migrators documents a long range project which puts the migrations of Dahl’s friends and colleagues into intimate conversation with the activities of our earliest hominid ancestors. Montaged prehistoric skulls and Dahl’s innovative mapping of the contemporary and prehistoric in space and time are all contained in a packet including: a handbook, collectible cards and poster-sized time and space charts. The images and concepts that are featured in this bookwork are components of Crista Dahl’s larger Life Rhythm project. An essay by Jairo Salazar positions Dahl’s innovative methods of image gathering and sorting alongside the early twentieth century work of Aby Warburg whose Atlas Mnemosyne restructured the way history was recorded through images of art that were positioned in emotive arrangements.
