SOLASTALGIC ARCHIVE

The Solastalgic Archive holds materials that contextualize and give breadth to how we are living and making in this time of accelerated change. Solastalgia is the premonition of transition, a sense of loss from an anticipated future. It is the feeling of homesickness before leaving home. What helps you feel the present? What connects you with your ancestors? How are you creating the future? Where is your time? When are you?

The Archive is constellation that brings time into a place where we can read it, smell it, taste it, touch it, reinvent it, ask it questions, and look for answers. Poems. Sketches. Memories. Doodles. Predictions. Photographs. Failures. Zines. Ghosts. Readers. Letters. Rocks. Mixtapes. Disasters. Maps. Photocopies. Manifestoes. Audio files. Drafts. Articles. Hopes. Videos. Seeds. Recipes. Candles. Questions. Diagrams. Lists. Bibliographies. Coffee cups. Directions. Dirt. Whispers. Manuscripts. Prototypes. A single sentence.

The Solastalgic Archive is an evolving, changing, temporal thing. Contributions are welcome. If you would like to contribute to the archive, please write to nina@ninaelder.com
