Collective memory probably exists. There are subtle threads connecting people, many of whom most likely are no longer with us today. I believe our aim, when we get our hands on a treasure, should be not to hide it but to show it to the world. I would like the story to sound mysterious: Say I found a chest with negatives from the forties and early fifties of the 20-th century made by an unknown boy from the UK and some comments on them. Say it was found on the seashore at low tide. That is because I do not want it to be as it is : that I simply bought an archive at a flea market in London. The archive is a living organism belonging both to the present and future and the past as well. Therefore I felt a need to include the found archive into my own one. I lived for a relatively long time in the UK and, in a way, that place began to feel like home.
