ARKIVIO is a work in progress that reflects on the temporariness of digital archives. The project analyses the fragility of such archives and the invisible accumulation data. The information that was preserved in an old computer, has been edited and later displayed in a series of volumes containing photos, documents, images, videos, albums and especially conversations on Windows Live Messenger. Those memories are filling the pages of six books, reconstructing part of my adolescence, from 2008 to 2011, exploring that time when I was between the ages of 15 and 18.
Up until now, only the first volume — which contains the chat conversations I had between November 2008 and May 2009 — has been printed. The next volume of ARKIVIO will contain the rest of the conversations from 2009.
