The gathering of collective memory. A pre-literate notion of memory, in a communal way, something commemorative rather than putting a memory in a container. What we thought it was going to be changed completely. We are in that way changing our memory of what it was supposed to be. What are you able to collect? Memories? Objects? People? A collection of texts and people, collecting and composing each other? Somehow it's not even important that we have all the knowledge, what's important is the living, generative sense of the collection.

Biyi Wen (Foshan, 1992) holds incessant interests for media archaeology and archival practices. That said, her work orients with the two axis noted in the bracket: Foshan, a southern city in China known for household electronics manufacturing; and 1992, the time to define looking back and projecting forward. The interests for archaeology and archiving radiate from these orientations, and evolve into more intricate and complex forms of narration and storytelling.
