The Aimless Archive is an art project, working across text – conversation – performance – collecting. It uses archival processes to question what we keep and what we get rid of. This approach might include a slowing down to see, the catching of overheard conversations, a process of cataloguing finds. Work often takes the form of a book – a box – a by-product.
Book-building – leading to archive-building – leading to community-building.
Promoting the unclear – the disordered – the difficult to read.
Seeking to investigate approaches to personal archiving and the work generated from those processes.
Constant development and accumulation – artistic process over end-product – making background reading visible.
