Saddle-stitched paperback with 28 colour photographs

'In the digital world there is no need for paper, for pens and pencils, for handwritten notes, for printed documents, for files. There are no solid and secure strong rooms. There’s no wear and tear. There is no material, no physical presence, no volume, no weight.’

Strong Room is a collaboration between London-based artists Roelof Bakker and Jane Wildgoose. Strong Room includes twenty-eight photographs showing traces of past human activity, which are used as inspiration for writing about the loss of tangible experiences and the lack of physical presence in the digital world. The historical and academic importance of paper-based archives are explored as well as their potential to prompt the imagination and evoke memories.
