archivo.me

I have been collecting objects that surround my daily life, since I can remember. In 2017, my obsession to keep the present was collected in the form of an archive. A project where I exposed and asked why people like to archive and hold time stable, in a constantly changing world.

What is the sense of preservation?

Who decides on which things need to be preserved and which do not?

After a year, this project takes a step forward. The proposal is developed to raise more questions about the archive, this time closer to the art world. Giving agency to the machine to rationally decide what can be part of my archive, while the public has the emotional input and the final decision. I want you, as an observer, to participate and make the machine decide which object should I keep and which should not.
