Archives in the Land
Archives are everywhere, in houses and libraries, in personal and public collections but they are also in the imprints we make on the landscape. They are something to pay attention to when we walk. People write history books of their towns so people can see the "places of interest."
The internet also provides archives of places, people and spaces. However there are some stories we are taught to overlook, some memories that may be hidden.
I draw here from the archives of family albums, anthropologists who gave me photographs, and the archive of the landscape around me.
Everywhere the land is shaped by the stories of what we do there, as well as perhaps a great creator as many believe.
