Video of interior of Living Archive prototype describing varied perceptions of the interior as light changes throughout the day as well as the capacity for the design to accommodate a collector’s idiosyncratic habits.  At times, the architecture is dominant and acts as a frame for objects; as accumulation progresses, the collection begins to saturate space and read volumetrically.  This illustrates a central conceptual challenge this design encountered:  how to be “generically specific,” providing a set of spaces for the inscribing of a collection on surfaces as a given inhabitant might desire.
