Inspired by Akram Zaatari’s exhibition The Script, Activating our Archives is a group project led by artist Sunil Shah which uses photography and curation to bring together a community of people from across Oxford to build an online archive of images that reflect on and explore their own lives.
This video below displays a selection of the finished archive. You can also explore the work via the hashtag #activatingourarchives on Instagram.
The archive reflects and expresses aspects of our lives that we consider as private, public, individual and collective. It explores how images are used online and how we represent ourselves online through social media.
