An archive as the contents of a speechless mind.

To change an archive into a possible vision, is to change a language defined by grammar and dictionary into a medium in which you can change your mind: by disregarding 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 these images are not meaning, they are like meaning. Taken out of their original positions in files and books, they can now form a new territory from which we can drill back into sources that may otherwise have remained invisible by being known, tagged and shelved.
