  • I will explore how to redefine, present and connect the archive to the realm of the everyday experience from a bottom-up and grassroots perspective connected to the larger theoretical perspective we have already developed. I am concerned with durable ways of dealing with the archive, and as such, will explore how to bring new purpose to Beeld en Geluid (BenG) through the creation of self-propagating and maintaining archive ecologies; connecting the archive to different special interest groups and existing social constructs, i.e. old people in an old person home, lending the interactions resilience, visibility and longevity.The goal will to develop the domain of archive ecologies, possible approaches towards their successful creation and examples of potential archive collaborations/extensions into daily life (3) that illustrate the kind of online + offline collaborations to create a new archive.
  • Smallbean, Citizen Archivist Project - Kwala, TanziniaThis project tackles education and community archiving all at once. Solar-powered A/V labs are setup using donated and refurbished equipment. These labs are then used to educate citizens in computer and critical technology skills in a continual community archival project. Citizens learn skills for future jobs and for the economic development of their community while documenting the life and stories within their communities, on one hand preserving their heritage while taking steps towards the future.

  • “The care of the records of contemporary civilization is a task so vast that neither the personnel nor the funds of our institutions of research can shoulder the burden. Many records will be preserved by amateurs or they will not be preserved at all…let there be included among our objectives not only a bathroom in every home and a car in every garage but a scholar in every schoolhouse and a man of letters in every town. Towards this end technology offers new devices and points the way.” (Robert C. Binkley, Spring 1935)

  • Archive Ecologies
  • Why?
    Gap between potential and use of the archive
    One time visits (museum experience)
    Hard to find/navigate web interfaces
    How could these interactions be extended towards the visibility and use of the archive?
  • What? Archive Ecologies
    Engage the community in realm of everyday life
    Communities, special interest groups
    Take a network, system approach
    Internet
    Institutions, companies, individuals
    Many smaller projects linked under one network
    Networked localities/multi-local
  • Approach
  • Two pronged approach
    Beelden Geluid
    Increase accessibility
    Usage, interpretation, content gen. in context of daily life
    Address social issue
    Self sustaining
    Community oriented
  • Approach
    Collaborative
    User led/participatory
    Multi-disciplinary

    Spinoffs
    End goal focused
    Scalable
