Webster’s defines an “archive” as no more than “a repository or collection.” Humans have tried to collect. And lost. What was on scrolls in a jar not to be found, or floppy disk in an attic with no machine to read it? Writers like Borges, Sebald, and O’Brien have created and explored various archives. There can be no archive of all information, how do we parse what we have, knowing that it will be incomplete? What are the systems that writers and artists have devised in their own work? We want you to tell us, to show us “an archive.” superpresent.org
