Archive V is a digital database of human hands, cataloged by profession and field of interest. It is dedicated to preserving physical characteristics and actions in preparation for the future – a future where physical activity will be significantly reduced. The archive is being constructed while thinking of a future where physical information will be upgraded and optimized to such a point that individual human uniqueness will be lost. The scanner used for collecting hands in the database allows for a highly sensitive scanning that incorporates, together with the images, one’s most personal characteristics such as heartbeats, movements etc., captured as a disruption that cannot be planned in advance. In this manner we are able to convert into a digital format the unique and irreproducible nature of a person’s hands, leaving a most personal human imprint in the form of digital files.
