Archive – 7049: Recordings of Historical Cultural Behaviours
installation; mixed media
dimensions variabile

Qianlin Wang gathers information from internet sources and then creates an archive of content that is not, but can become art. This digital archive includes different popular media articles, websites, operative systems, and video recordings. The artist presupposes a fictional idea of a post-apocalyptic future that she takes as a starting point for the process of collecting and storing. According to that, her installation befits a virtual library full of information age residue.
