Collecting Communication: Communicating Collection
Project Details

This publication was the product of my final year project for my Bachelor's degree at the American University of Beirut in 2009. It was preceded by a thesis paper about the significance of contemporary collecting.

The nature of storing information and mementos has changed drastically with the advent of quasi unlimited virtual space. This book deals with the overwhelming accumulation of correspondences in a digital age. Its goal is to make sense of my huge collection of letters, text messages, Facebook messages, emails, and chats by organizing them and finding new ways of visually representing the data at hand. This led to surprising relations between people in my life, the way I communicate with them and and how I archive this communication.
