Jacek will present his Fragmentarium, which hosts 12 different projects that have to do with documenting different aspects of the everyday-life via different media (sound, collage, video, text, GPS data, etc). The data is displayed as a series of index cards. There is also a digital component to the project. It is an embedded offline network that allows access to the digital database. Thus, the cards work as both archival traces and index cards leading to the corresponding digital data. The data is also available through nearby mobile devices.
