Accidental Archives

1 woven print and 10 front/back cmyk screen prints;
4.25” x 6” [postcard size]


A collection of things I consider to be Accidental Archives; 
things that unintentionally act as a record of information, share stories, or act as an account of existence or action in some way that seems archival.


(i.e. A Cemetery being an Archive of lives and deaths, of families, of where someone lived, or the history of the location;
The library due date cards being an archive of time and places that book has, how popular the book is, or how old;
The shortcut Buttons on a radio serving as an archive of someones interest in music, their recent locations, or the person who has recently driven the car)
