The Collaged Archive

Editorial Design, Web Design | 2016


The Collaged Archive is a multi-layer project that examines curation as a design tool. After choosing an archive of film stills for inspiration, I took two contrasting approaches, micro and macro, to codify and categorize the information.

The resulting discoveries, originally culled from the same archive, were separated into a web and print platform meant to exist independently of each other. The micro approach extrapolates from one film, Moonrise Kingdom, and represents it through a webpage. The macro approach reoganizes a more comprehensive collection of film stills to correspond with Erik Erikson’s Stages of Psychosocial Development, juxtaposing the stills with Erikson’s text in book form.
