Archiving (February 2019)

The opposite of remembering isn't forgetting, it's data.

True memory is the enrichment of intuition.

Naive formulations of "archiving", divorced from viscerality and community, are ineffectual facsimiles, not even ghosts but mere pollution. To compulsively "remember" through excessive data is worse than forgetting.

A true archive is one that enriches the collective intuition of its surrounding ecology.
