FAMILY COLLECTION

 

Family Collection
12 digital prints, 2009


One day I found herbariums in an attic; my grandmother's, my grandmother's father's and his sister's. Most of the plants were collected in the areas surrounding the family house in the outskirts of Kungsbacka, and the oldest specimens were collected in 1901. Time has paled the plats and yellowed the paper sheets. Every archive makes specific impact on the archived material.

Family Collection consist of twelve scanned sheet with pressed plants. During the scanning process I moved around the sheets creating media specific distortions. By adding this new layer to the documents I add to and update the archive of those plants, but also to my family's interest in them.
