‘Imaging a Living Archive’


Dr. Eve Olney will discuss reconceptualizing the idea of the archive in relation to everyday experience. By engaging in an experimental ethnographic study of the NSF as a ‘living archive’, Olney replaces conventional classificatory systems by meaning found within the ‘axis of social relations’.


Dr. Eve Olney is an academic and media practitioner  who explores her subjects through media-practice led experimental ethnographic technique. Her current field of interest involves cultivating alternative methodological approaches to understanding archives and archival knowledge.
