“Joe Bochynski's fake archaeology challenges viewers to figure out what's believable and what's not......Bochynski, an artist, masquerades as the director of the fictitious NYC Department of Archaeology (DoA). He uses the fragments as bases for mosaics, which he then pairs with records professing that they're objects unearthed from dig sites around the city."
