We’re proud to present In Re Production of Tangible Things by Gijsbert Wouter Wahl as part of our Internet Archive Tumblr Residency program.
In Re Production of Tangible Things brings ephemera obsessively combed from the databases out into intertwined chapters.
From the description:
"To change an archive into a possible vision, is to change a language defined by grammar and a dictionary into a medium in which you can change your mind. You must disregard how the content has originally been tagged and shelved.
Here, the archive has been pictured as a language that is not defined but spoken. Speaking without any idea of definition, is like speaking in tongues. The bonds between the images here are not meaning, they are like meaning. Out of their original positions in files and books, they can now become part of a new territory from which we can drill back into sources that may otherwise have remained invisible.”
Building on a theme made available by Ok Focus, Gijsbert creates layers of meaning with literally layered transparent images.
The project will be posting 40 images a day until next Monday athttp://internetarchive.tumblr.com/ and will be archived at its own URL,http://inreproductionoftangiblethings.tumblr.com/. Each chapter can be navigated to and read using the links on the left.
