An Elementary Taxonomy of Collected Memory

archive rack, 999 reels of 8mm film, audiovisual equipment, 36 monitors (ongoing)


An Elementary Taxonomy of Collected Memory (2008-2015) is a 14 m long installation is a visual and three dimensional (re)presentation of the film archive which simultaneously functions as an externalization of the institute per se, both as an archive rack and a display case. The upper side serves as a display; it presents not only an extensive selection of images from the archive but also a graphic interpretation of the Integrated System, the classification which I use to organize memories into categories and archetypes.
