My Body is (no/w)where?
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.

While composing this archive, my main interest has laid in the roots of ‘physical/work’ and ‘body’. As a retired semi-professional athlete I value the work I do with my body. Throughout exercising I thrive to become a better version of myself. To strengthen my mental physique alongside physical. I use a training app called Nike Training Club, which provides me a selection of different training programmes. Like one can guess, the app is owned by the largest sportswear corporation in the world, which raises a question: Who am I working for, myself and my body or the ‘body’ of the corporation?
