This page documents the various ways that visitors to the mock institution at 3307 W. Washington Blvd. engaged with and organized the ephemera collection during An-Archive-in-Residence. Displayed here are some of the different ways visitors categorized and defined new topographies for the archive itself. These photographed collections of ephemera, named piles marked by book weights, are the only record of the objects chosen for this temporary archival ordering. Each re-organization remained during the residency for the next visitor to encounter and potentially re-order, but at the close of the residency the materials were returned to the archive with a semblance of original order. The slips of paper, with hand written responses, and the images below are all that remain of this archival moment.
