</archive> is an open archive of urban experience built from the street. Using unique QR code tags collaborators can make their personal experiences of the city accessible in physical space.

After placing a QR sticker on an object or location, the tag is scanned using a QR scanner on a mobile device like an iPhone or Android and an entry is created consisting of text and an image. Anyone on the street can then view the archive entry by scanning the tag or entering the unique URL. is an online repository of user entries in New York City.

We are trying to raise money ($800) to fund the printing of our QR stickers. 

The project is intentionally open in nature; encouraging users to explore the format however they wish. Each archive entry might be used to locate a memory in the city, post a commentary, a protest, a form of advocacy, etc...

</archive> was created by Alex Dodge, Yoni Ben Simhon, Eszter Ozsvald, and Mirit Tal.

</archive> will have a booth at The New Museum's "Festival of Ideas for a New City" street fest - May 7th
