The Submerged Archive: An Introduction

The purpose of this blog is to explore, through objects found in the archive, the lost, the forgotten, the ephemeral, the hidden, and the occulted. We use the term archive in both its literal sense, a collection of documents stored in a physical location, and its metaphorical sense. The metaphorical meaning of the term is a slippery thing, but for our purposes can be anything from the collective cultural memory of humankind to those physical objects that are theoretically accessible to us no matter where or when they are physically stored.
