    A book in the shape of an archive, or an archive in the shape of a book.

    A small box containing reproduced letters, photographs and articles written by and written about my great grandmother and creative role model, the sculptress Ninnan Santesson. This alternative archive focus on Ninnans thoughts and feelings related to her creative process as an female artist and creator. The archive was an attempt to deepen my relationship to a person I never knew but who, despite that, influenced my creativity and motivation. 

    This is my graduation project from Beckmans College of Design. The archive was displayed at Beckmans Graduation Show 2017.
