Title: The World is Just a Great Big (Archive) Onion
Authors: Stubbs, Mike
Keywords: living archive
digital storytelling
Issue Date: 31-Jan-2011

Type: Article
Citation: Stubbs, Mike (2010). "The World is Just a Great Big (Archive) Onion". Artnodes, 2010, Vol. 0, num 10
Abstract: The article reflects on some of the key challenges that the new possibilities of archives and databases have brought us in the context of media art, as much as for all cultural productions. The utopia of infinite storage, the re-empowerment of viewer as producer, the collective tagging practice, the need for a narrative able to construct meaning from the excess of data, or the creation of a particular view of the world through the mediation of cultural objects are some of the issues explored in this article. Through the experience of FACT as a cultural institution dealing with many of the key issues treated here, the article affirms the need for an articulation of a view of the past able to introduce media art practices in the context of art and cultural history, and speculates around the new paradigm for archiving today.
