What if all the seemingly insignificant artefacts from our life were carefully filed and catalogued? The sugar packet from the café where you had your first break up, the doodle on the back of your high school notebook, a message you should have sent but didn’t?
The Archive is an interactive experience where you become the archivist, piecing together the small moments in the lives of two teenagers and discovering how, when stitched together, these easily missed memories and experiences can become the key to something everyone is searching for. The Archive is a screen based experience, embedded in an archive ‘office’ environment.
Part One of The Happiness Project is currently in development and will be released in Spring 2021.
