The archives are where memories are stored and history is made, but how does one redefine the archive? This workshop investigates the major shift of archiving through analog and digital processes. Drawing from memory, personal narratives, emotions and perceptions are used to manipulate ideas and data into new objects and map a new history. Using both traditional woodworking processes and innovative digital fabrication techniques, students reconstruct and deconstruct archives transforming them into objects of origin with a meaning, purpose and fragmented identity.
