Develop a catalogue that functions as a flexible archive in order to analyze and develop new forms of interpretation. This project challenges you to begin to use the process of collecting as a way of researching; to understand the process of archiving, and the archive itself; to use an archive to translate form into new language; and most importantly to look closer. Students are challenged to source a large array of material/media to create a database that functions as a flexible archive in order to analyze and experiment with conditional organizational structures.
The project is divided into three distinct phases: Cataloguing, Translation, and Synthesis. Each phase of the project includes an introduction, studio time, and process critiques.
