On Archive Fever:

The Guardian "[Derrida] convincingly argues that, although the archive is a public entity, it nevertheless is the repository of the private and personal, including even intimate details."

Session with Steve: Swarm 02

A Communications Primer –  (Film: 1953)
The Parasite – Michel Serres

Writing exercise: Defining tasks and outcomes

-Get to know the archive a bit better and try to get an overview on the contents of the material.
-Come up with relevant questions concerning the act of archiving, our process, and the challenges we face.

-Read to the archive and come up with possible tags that can be used next to the semantic metadata or that we need to add.
-Read trough Lost and Living in Archives and see what we can use to back up our research by making annotations.

-Knowing the contents is essential to come up with an overall concept and ways to activate or navigate through the archive.
-I feel the need to understand a bit better what we are actually doing and what it means in a wider context (fi its social importance)

- A better understanding of how to structure and navigate the archive (for an outsider/visitor)
- Find relevant references, annotations to back up our collective research.
- Hopefully ideas on a (design) concept
- Useful annotations
