Jan/Feb 2019

Archives are chroniclers of human history. Collecting, sorting, and storing information, they are important starting points for research activities.


Archival material can consist of either physical documents or objects in “real” places, and increasingly often comprise digital data that is retrievable from any location. What is stored in an archive, whether or not it is with the knowledge or consent of the associated people, the extent to which archives are complete and neutral, and the question of whether, thanks to modern technology, there is still something left to forget, are all areas that are worthy of reflection.

We further take a look at the phenomenon of card indexes which have long-since slipped into obscurity in their analogue form, but are experiencing a renaissance in the digital world as design elements of websites. We also follow the electrification of goods traffic on motorways as well as ask how design can assist people who are functionally illiterate.
