Anthropology, Is It Useless?

From as early as I could remember, the yellow borders of National Geographic were some of my favorite to explore. I would spend hours poring over the pages learning about other places and people wishing I could meet them. A dream job of mine was to be an archaeologist like Indiana Jones because it seemed exciting.


If you browsed through my personal Instagram feed you’d find a mix of digital and film images all collaged together in a seemingly harmonious cluster of hipster chic. In truth, I have often fallen prey to the cyclical revival of antiquarian tech and oddities; I own everything from Tony Bennett vinyls to an original 1993 Jurassic Park t-shirt (they had an exhaustive paragraph long copyrighting under the logo and it looks fake as a result).
