Unconscious Production
Blurry Transparency
UN/SPOKEN ARCHIVES is a project by 1st year students of the Graphic Design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy initiated and accompanied by the Werker Collective. To share our knowledge and stories we created a series of amateur archives based on our own desires, fears, passions, disappointments, obsessions, family memories and localities.

I describe unconscious dreamy pictures that I took and collected in daily moments in school, at the library, in the hallway, inside of a lift, at my place, inside of the metro and on the streets. These pictures are mostly obscure, vague and abstract. Together with my friends Victoria and Sigga we simultaneously describe the pictures from different points of view. What could we see from these blurry pictures which are taken through transparent materials compared to our general sights? We are captured and surveilled from numerous cameras in the streets. And consequently we’re all also reflected by those cameras.
