Disappearing Ink installation detail. John Salvest, 2014.

An exhibition of printed ephemera recording our stories, history and cultural memory. Print media is disappearing and being replaced by ever mutating digital media. For more than 200 years news media have documented our histories. How will we capture our memories in 2050?

This project made possible by the Student Activity Fee Fund.
