'the system of interspecies communication: all are systems of mourning' - Paul B. Preciado, An Apartment on Uranus

The decay of contemporary digital archives, in which connections break down and decompose, posits a new experimental form of ‘preservation’. Artists Beau W Beakhouse and Sadia Pineda Hameed explore alternatives to the hegemonic, colonial history of archives conceived as centres of power, instead forming linkages that are personal, fragile or unfinished. This decomposing digital space will be shaped by and through research, text art and essay, to form relational and associative pathways.
